CSuite: Built for Sustainability

CSuite is designed to be highly scalable to suit the needs of small and large communities of all types and of diverse capabilities within those communities. This allows a community running CSuite to build a broad base of support, leading to increased sustainability.

Sustainability is also promoted through a number of built-in features. The vision is of an ever-growing "community of communities" sharing experience and growing together.

CSuite is completely open in that all parts are free to obtain and modify. This gives sites using CSuite the security of knowing that they are not completely dependent on one source for fixes and new versions. This is a critical factor when one is running a system that large numbers of people depend on -- one cannot wait for a vendor to fix a critical problem "in the next version".

Small rural communities will benefit from development work carried out in large urban centres with resources such as universities that most small towns do not have.
