NuCivic builds, delivers, and supports an eponymous suite of "Open SaaS" civic software solutions for governments and non-profit organizations worldwide. Our mission is to improve the efficacy of civic organizations and governments, by making innovative knowledge management solutions accessible at an affordable cost.
NuCivic solutions are based on distributions (specialized configurations), of the Drupal CMS that runs many of the world's most complex civic websites. Thus, NuCivic incorporates technical innovation from more than 20,000 engineers that have contributed code to Drupal. NuCivic solutions are delivered as "OpenSaaS"-- turnkey hosted and supported software-as-a-service (SaaS), but still truly open-source, such that a customer can export their solution and redeploy it in their own environment at any time.
Our first NuCivic product is "NuCivic Data," the OpenSaaS service based on our DKAN distribution of Drupal. DKAN provides a full suite of open data cataloging, publishing and visualization features, plus rich content and community management features. DKAN is API-compatible with CKAN, the popular Python-based software widely deployed by many national governments.
