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,
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).

Nexedis dedication to research has resulted in a number of inventions over the
course of the last 15 years, many of which have become core components in many
of our software solutions.
