The Yoosphera project avails itself of the support of the homonymous software which creates a virtual environment yet made of real knowledge, information, and relations. Such software is the result of years of study in various subjects, spanning from natural to social sciences, from mathematical to information sciences; furthermore, the software constitutes the main tool to implement our projects of both Policy Planning and E-Learning, represents the best vehicle for Social Marketing campaigns, and permits a constant Feedback system by which to evaluate in real time an organisation’s effectiveness and efficiency so that to promptly apply the necessary adjustments.
As the software tool, though realised with an intuitive interface, implies an adequate hardware support and a fast Internet connection as well as the skills to use them, the overall Yoosphera system provides for appropriate devices so that no community member is marginalised; in fact, Yoosphera improves everyone’s integration level.
The Yoosphera software is made for any real community such as a Public administrative Body, a School, or any Associative body, and it is customisable on request by any community and organisation according to its own needs. Such software is provided by the flexible and dynamic modality of Software as a Service (SaaS), so that the user will have to simply create its own account without worrying about obtaining the software, installing it, managing it, and maintaining it on its own computer or server, with noteworthy savings on costs and time. All of this is now possible thanks to the World Wide Web and to the data transmission speed over the Internet, which favour outsourcing.
By considering the way the service is provided we have paid close attention to the data protection, so that to preserve the data privacy, availability, and integrity according to the EU Data Protection Directive 95/46/EC adopted in Italy by the D.Lgs. 196/2003.
