Bika employs modern technology designed for the future. It is platform independent and web based, hence easily migrates for hand-held or mobile phone access

Download and install your own. See the Installation Guides

Bika is built in Plone, a content management framework that is closely integrated with Zope, a widely-used open source object oriented web application server and development system

Plone is being used by eBay, Motorola, Nokia and the Australian, New Zealand, Brazilian and Austrian governments,
the North Carolina and other universities around the world

Plone is built with focus on internationalisation and accessibility for the sight and motor impaired. 35 Plone language translations are currently available. Bika benefits from Zope and Plone's role based security, workflows and audit trails, live search functionality, integrated alerts and clean design by usability experts

Zope itself is written in Python, an easy-to-learn, widely-used and supported open source programming language. Python can be used to add new features to Bika, and to understand or make changes to the way Plone works

Agile Python is the language preferred by Google, NASA, Industrial Light and Magic and many others. It offers unprecedented programmer productivity
