Answered Will Hortis include capabilities to manage a library? C Cherry Blossom started a topic almost 2 years ago Hortis is focussed on plant and garden-based living collections. Our current database also looks after our library – are there any plans to extend your platform to do things like that?
Incorporating external products such as libraries and bibliographic management is a good example where we would look at integrating with other software using our “microservices architecture”. This allows us to design our software alongside independently deployable services (“microservices”), that can run with our platform through a lightweight resource application programming interface (API).
Using this approach will allow us to keep the platform easy to use, without a “bloated” feel for our users, and using existing solutions which gardens may already be very satisfied with. We look forward to later expanding software integrations into other related areas, such as in garden visitation.
