Our philosophy is simple: The web and its ability to use browser-based forms to edit and maintain information provides a perfect medium in which people -- independent of location and computing platform -- can work together to build and maintain an information base. Whether this is a set of HTML pages or student attendance records, the basic mechanisms for creating, retrieving, and updating data are the same.
Information by itself is not as important as the relationships you make between sets of information. It's one thing to know a person's first name, last name, email address, and phone number. But being able to associate that person with newsletter subscriptions, interests, and discussions is of even greater use to your business or organization.
The Community Servers technology enables entire communities of online users to easily maintain database records and information relationships in a variety of applications. These applications can range from complex multi-site content management applications to travel forms to online discussion forums.
