We ❤ Open Source!

At Wilde IT, we ❤ Open Source Software, and try our upmost to be a part of, offer advice to and contribute to the Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) community.

On many occasions, we have found FOSS products to be more secure, flexible and reliable than their "Big Tech" or "GAFAM" counterparts.


Because of this, we can offer a much, much, broader service than off-the-shelf alternatives allowing for a more suitable, modern and dynamic solution.
