Why is OpenProject better than Kantata for project management

If you are looking for an open source project management alternative to Kantata (MavenLink), take a look at the following advantages of OpenProject.

We are open source

Kantata is a proprietary software. Therefore, users run the risk of depending solely on the vendor to make code adjustments and implement feature requests. OpenProject is an open source software and as such it can be the more secure and more cost efficient option. It provides absolute transparency and high flexibility. This article on choosing an open source software further elaborates on the advantages over a proprietary solution.

Host your own on-premises edition

With its strong commitment to data privacy and information security, OpenProject offers self-hosting through the Enterprise on-premises edition. An on-premises software offers the highest security level and allows to comply with the strictest data security regulations and ensures reliability. OpenProject provides the flexibility to customize, resulting a level of control over data processing and storage that the cloud often cannot offer. In addition, it offers a Powerful API for the integration of any application. Kantata does not offer an on-premises solution.

No compromises in data protection

If you decide to go with the cloud edition, you can be sure that your data is secure. OpenProject has its headquarters in the EU, is GDPR compliant by default and stores all of the data in the EU. Kantata stores and processes the data in the US.
