TESUJI - the best move

Ars Informatica
Go is the most ancient table game of all times. It is an enticing, fair intellectual challenge, such as software development for us. In Go Tesuji means the best move one can make in a given situation. We work with enthusiasm and in close collaboration with our clients so that choosing to use our expertise and our products, first of all our publish and search engine Anacleto, becomes and remains the very best move they can make!

Ethics and Excellence
From both professional and ethical points of view we are committed to work with Open Source tools. For us it is simply the best way towards a high quality product. For our clients it is the most ethical solution.
Aquiring a Tesuji licence we give along the complete code. Obviously technical support is guaranteed but our clients do not depend on us, being free to change what and whenever they need to.

Some highlights about us:
  • outstanding programming potential
  • professional knowledge and usage of the industry standards
  • never-ending learning activity
  • wide range of scientific background (from natural sciences and life sciences to humanities);
  • multicultural and multilingual background
  • working experience in various countries (Italy, Hungary, Luxembourg, Romania, Izrael, North-America), good understanding of and readiness to adapt to the users' different cultural backgrounds
  • strong ethical norms: we would like to follow Kant's categorical imperative: Act only according to that maxim by which you can at the same time will that it would become a universal law.
  • we are humanists: we belive, that the famous opening sentence of Aristotle's Metaphysics is relevant eversince: All men by nature desire to know and we belive in free will.
  • some of us follow the principles of R. Steiner's "Phylosophy of Freedom" and sustain the Eliant campaign (www.eliant.eu)

What's in a Name?
November 30th, 2006
Remember when we thought Google was a funny-sounding name? Well, try "tesuji," a 100-percent open-source content management and search engine that's the official search engine for Project Gutenberg. Tesuji "means the best move one can make in a given situation," according to the rules of the antique board game called "Go," said Anna Tothfalusi, M.D., account manager. Tesuji's product line features four solution tools: Anacleto digital library, Anacleto corporate, Anacleto portal search, and Anacleto document management. We have chosen to concentrate on a few products to provide the maximum customization possible, she said. The site's graphics and press materials are some of the best around. Company offices are in Rome, Hungary, and the United Arab Emirates.
