About Trifork
Trifork is an EU based IT company designing, building, and implementing custom software using advanced open source technologies. Enthusiastic innovators and passionate professionals from Trifork work together with customers on solving complex IT problems. Trifork offers open, trustworthy, and transparent management. We at Trifork are focusing on:

Ongoing investigation and adoption of new technologies: through continuous education and knowledge sharing via GOTO Conferences, GOTO Academy, and GOTO Nights, we recognize which technologies are (too) hot or have cooled down ;-). Thus Trifork experts are able to help customers to use these in their disruptive solutions and projects.
Advanced projects: Today, the most predictable problems have already been automated and are often offered as an off-the-shelf solution, leaving behind customers with exceptional situations or specific problems that often lead to developing custom software. Trifork delivers project teams for custom solutions in area of Web & Mobile applications, Search & Big Data solutions, and architecture and infrastructure platforms. Open source technology and an agile approach are the keys for projects with Trifork.
New product development: when there is an issue that has not been solved yet, a new open source product is born. Examples are Spring, Elasticsearch and AXON, the CQRS Java Framework.
Often a solution developed in collaboration of Trifork and customer’s team is evolving into a new product that becomes a foundation for a separate spin-off company. A few examples are Trifork Learning Solutions ( – the QTI Assesment Engine, Brightcenter ( – educational apps, DinDanSocial ( – a hospitality based social network, and The Surface Network ( – Smart Floors.
