Southpaw Technology Launches Open Source TACTIC

One of the most proven asset management systems on the market is now available free of charge to digital content creators

 

Siggraph 2012 – Aug 6, 2012 Southpaw Technology, a leading developer of production asset management (PAM) technology for digital content creators, announced today that it has released its technology under the Eclipse Public License, an OSI (Open Source Initiative) approved open source license. Effective immediately, any team, studio, department or enterprise creating digital content can download TACTIC for free and start using it to manage their assets, projects and creative workflow. The Company will continue to offer support packages, professional services and commercial licenses to entities who prefer or require such licenses. The open source version of TACTIC can be downloaded at: www.southpawtech.com/opensource.

 

“It’s time to re-think how companies approach asset management, project management and workflow,” said Gary Mundell, CEO of Southpaw Technology. “TACTIC is now being used across multiple industries, where every company has its own unique workflow, and needs a foundational product like ours to streamline that workflow. We are aware that removing the restrictive licensing fees is a win-win for everyone. Without upfront costs, customers can gain access to a very mature and very flexible production asset management solution that they can adapt to their internal toolset and processes, without any restrictions. And if those companies need assistance, they can come to the TACTIC experts, us.”

 

The open source code will initially be available from Southpaw Technology in a new product called TACTIC TEAM. Downloadable from Southpaw’s site, TACTIC TEAM is a desktop version of TACTIC that is ideal for smaller teams and for the evaluation of TACTIC’s core features. Once users get accustomed to TACTIC TEAM, they can upgrade to the more robust TACTIC ENTERPRISE with or without assistance from the Southpaw support staff.

 

 

Southpaw Technology has produced a handful of tutorial videos to get new users started, as well as launched a community forum where users can share information, code, add-ons, and insights.  Southpaw will continue to offer commercial licenses to any company, educational institute and governmental agency who so desires them. In addition, Southpaw will maintain it’s Premium Support and Professional Services offerings for those companies that require assistance in customizing TACTIC to their specific environment.
