Short Description: 

Perspect IT is a company of two. We are motivated by the threat posed to our society by the big internet companies. We focus on the way the internet is constructed by professionals. Their conceptual framework, as it presents itself in modelling tools, programming languages, frameworks, etc. inevitably leads to the internet we have today and keep it as it is. The dominant modelling language (UML) for creating software does not even address the very notion of privacy!

We provide them with a new narrative, new tools and a new way of thinking.

NGI solution(s) used by your organisation: 

Perspectives is a new method to design co-operation. It's models have a mathematical base and are automatically interpreted by a distributed runtime to form operational software, that supports the modelled co-operation. Design peer-to-peer software, private by design, human- and community centred, by using just five concepts: Context, Role, Action, Property and Perspective. 


As the runtime is completely distributed, it goes beyond Blockchain. Perspectives provides a new narrative for developers of the internet.
