Nexedi tries to stay on the forefront of information technology by putting strong emphasis on research and innovation. We are continuously investing in open source research together with partner companies and academic institutions and have many software products originating from former research projects. Key topics of interest include business intelligence, machine learning, cloud computing, distributed web and data storages. Nexedi's own innovations, such as the Unified Business Model (UBM) or the ERP5 Implementation Process lie at the core of our solutions and business practices and have been both researched extensively and academically published.
Conducting joint research and development with partners has shown to be a key success factor for our open source projects. Some partners have been working with us for many years even contributing additional modules to ERP5 (such as ERP5 eGov) while others are involved in reasearching and creating technologies embedded in many of Nexedis solutions.
Nexedi's research projects and cooperations with academic institutions have lead to a growing list of scientific publications. Articles, papers and book chapters related to Nexedi technologies have been published by IEEE, IFIP and ACM among others.
The One Student One ERP (OSOE) is a program providing every student and researcher of involved partner institutions a dedicated ERP system with Customer Relation Management (CRM), Document/Knowledge Management (KM) and an online development environment to teach management science, learn how to configure an ERP system and provide a testbed for innovative research.
With OSOE, Nexedi tries to contibute to the progress of Management Science by creating mutual collaborations with academic research and education while at the same time advancing teaching of ERP related topics towards Massive Open Online Courses (MOOC).
