Corteza is a fully open-source platform with minimal technological, operational, financial and legal limitations. It was created to be a solution stack for a sustainable future.
As the world is today, people and organizations don’t have independence, freedom and choice in regard to ownership and control of their data or the applications they create with it.
This lack of digital freedom is caused by the artificial scarcity and centralized control propagated by the tech industry’s proprietary business models, which value closed, non-standardized technology, restrictive licensing and data siloing. This is true of the tech industry as a whole and of the large tech giants in particular.
An open, standardized, structured data layer will effectively eliminate and moot this artificial scarcity and proprietary digital control by allowing people and organizations anywhere in the world to own, control and share – either locally or globally, in isolation or joined up – their data and the applications they build with it, without giving up their digital freedom, independence and control.
Without this essential digital freedom, we artificially handicap humankind’s ability to respond quickly and effectively to business, economic, governmental, humanitarian, climate, healthcare and other challenges the world faces. Only by being able to respond effectively to these challenges, can the world sustain itself within the finite space that is our planet Earth.
Regardless of whether Corteza’s users are sole developers, small businesses, large enterprises, local or global non-profits, healthcare providers or governmental organizations – everything in Corteza is built in the belief that, as Corteza adoption increases, so does the world’s ability to overcome these challenges and save itself by working towards a sustainable future.
