Keeping your data open
We are not interested in locking your data; you are their owner. The Butterfly Data Platform offers the following
guarantees to all organizations, small or big.
Open data storage
Butterfly can store your information space the way you want to.
Butterfly uses our data-store driver mechanism to operate on top
of SQL, XML and NoSQL data-stores all the same.
You can arrange the Butterfly installation to fit the
existing IT infrastructure of your organization (re-using your existing data-store). You
can also select an open-source data-store to hold your data or you can use Butterfly's
data-migration facilities to get rid of your old, legacy data-store.
In all cases, we can help you setup and deploy Butterfly in the optimal way
for your needs.
Open data usage
Butterfly will not stand in the way should you need to (re)use your information space in other contexts.
Butterfly supports well-established interoperability protocols that let you
share your information space, should you need to. The platform also offers a RESTful API that allows
you to reuse your data in other applications. The platform's data-export facilities will
let you hold your items in open XML formats. Finally, Butterfly data-migration facilities
will help you replace the platform's underlying data-store at any time, should you need to.
We 'll be there to help you in all your data-migration, interoperability and integration needs.
