Today marks the beginning of The Venture Project’s active analysis period as initial users get in and work with specific Creative Control Engine components. We’re also assembling the review checklist to ensure each individual feature and module is properly designed and incorporated into the final product. It’s gratifying to see everything coming together and it has been equally satisfying to receive the amount of interest inquires from colleagues throughout the arts business. Consequently, I want to extend a sincere invitation to all arts consultants and other arts technology professionals to get in touch and learn more about how Venture can help you work with clients and add value to your service…
Venture isn’t being designed as a competitive product; instead, it’s intended to serve as a tool that a wide variety of direct users and service providers can utilize to improve the entire field. We encourage collaboration will be posting a wide variety of development specifications for third party developers to use when designing modules and plugins that integrate with Venture’s Creative Control Engine.
Another way we’re promoting collaboration over competition is by designing Venture to maximize flexibility without sacrificing performance. The results allow arts organizations to develop a strategic website, marketing, and analytics presence using internal resources or those from a preferred designer and technology consultant. There’s no “our way or the highway” mentality here.
Technical development specifications and provider details should be wrapped up by the end of the month but I’m happy to begin a dialog with technical and service providers now in order to accelerate your own development process. Feel free to get in touch via email or call 708-445-2675.
In the meantime, make sure you sign up for the official Venture Platform launch notice.
