I’ve been working and experimenting on the Define module of myActivo. The questions that I’m trying to answer for the design of this module are: what would be the best way to represent the structure of asset information? how should this information be presented to the user? how should this information be stored in the… Continue reading Representing Hierarchies
When talking about his work, Steve Jobs often cited the quote “good artists copy, great artists steal” which he attributed to Pablo Picasso. This rings particularly true for an open-source project like myActivo. I could not have put this piece of software together if I was not relying on other great projects. Remember the ladder… Continue reading Technologies and Frameworks
According to Wikipedia, Software Architecture: … refers to the fundamental structures of a software system and the discipline of creating such structures and systems. Each structure comprises software elements, relations among them, and properties of both elements and relations. WIkipedia, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Software_architecture I heard on a podcast sometime ago that software architecture was the art of… Continue reading Choosing an Architecture
In my previous post I discussed the core concepts behind Digital Asset Management. In the context of that definition, in this article I document how these concepts translate to the requirements and features that myActivo will implement. I will then build the implementation plan on GitHub projects so the roadmap is visible to anyone interested… Continue reading Requirements and Features
So, what is Digital Asset Management? If you search the term “Digital Asset Management” on Google, the most likely set of results will relate to the management of digital assets, such as software, audio, graphics, photos, documents, etc. Well, this is not what I mean by Digital Asset Management in the context of myActivo. When… Continue reading Digital Asset Management
myActivo is an open-source software platform that reimagines what the management of physical assets in the digital era can be. Starting with no assumptions about what is possible, myActivo embodies and experiments with the ideas behind the concept of Digital Asset Management. What if instead of progressively adopting digital technologies into the engineering practice we… Continue reading What is myActivo?
