6 CIM3's Approach Augmentation - collaboration - human-machine interaction – bootstrappingAugmentation - collaboration - human-machine interaction – bootstrapping Openness - we use open-source software & comply with open standards as much as we can; we open-source our technology and content, and participate in open standards developmentOpenness - we use open-source software & comply with open standards as much as we can; we open-source our technology and content, and participate in open standards development Capitalizing on the Internet technology: taking itCapitalizing on the Internet technology: taking it from the research and academic network from the research and academic network to the current form as publishing media to the current form as publishing media to Transactions and Web Services to Transactions and Web Services onto being its future as knowledge media in the Semantic Web onto being its future as knowledge media in the Semantic Web Providing Enterprise performance, quality & robustnessProviding Enterprise performance, quality & robustness System built upon a knowledge architecture optimized for distributed teamworkSystem built upon a knowledge architecture optimized for distributed teamwork Emphasis on effectiveness and strategic value - not technologyEmphasis on effectiveness and strategic value - not technology Supporting the entire spectrum of users: from the uninitiated to the power usersSupporting the entire spectrum of users: from the uninitiated to the power users While we do open-source work, we believe in properly remunerating our contributorsWhile we do open-source work, we believe in properly remunerating our contributors
