The integration between Nextcloud and OpenProject will offers enterprises a data sovereignty and increase in productivity.
Nextcloud is the worlds’ most deployed on-premises content collaboration platform. It is open-source software that allows you to run a personal cloud storage service. Nextcloud has features that are comparable to other services such as Dropbox.
OpenProject is a free and open source online project management software with collaboration features. It is being used in the public sector, IT & technology, education and research industry as well as in manufacturing, health care, construction and non-profit.
Today these two companies announced collaboration and integration features. The OpenProject and Nextcloud integration will improve the productivity of their enterprise users. It combines the strength of market leading content collaboration platform Nextcloud and the leading open source project management software OpenProject.
The partnership with Nextcloud is another step on our path to providing data sovereignty to our customers by combining the best of powerful open source applications. It fills me with great joy to join forces with such a strong partner in the open source community that shares the same motivation.Niels Lindenthal, Founder and CEO at OpenProject GmbH
The integration is available starting with Nextcloud 20. It enables users to keep an eye on ongoing project activities directly out of their Nextcloud instance.
On the Nextcloud dashboard users can add an OpenProject widget to display latest changes to project’s work packages. OpenProject information also can be included in the built-in universal search of Nextcloud.
The Nextcloud notifications will be enhanced by OpenProjects activities. A link can be added in the header navigation to directly lead users from their content collaboration platform to their environment for project management. Also users can setup oauth authentication for their OpenProject instance.
The OpenProject/Nextcloud integration app can be found in the Nextcloud app store. The results of further integration efforts are expected later in 2021.
