About Synopse

"Synopse Informatique" (aka Synopse) is a French software development firm founded by Arnaud Bouchez, specialized in providing custom database and search engines, written in the object pascal language.

"Synopse Informatique" in french translates more or less in "Synopsis Software"... here "Synopsis" doesn't mean a brief summary, but comes from late latin, itself from Ancient Greek σύνοψις (sunopsis), i.e. σύν (sun, “with”) + ὄψις (opsis, “view”). It's commonly used to describe a book displaying some similar documents in parallel, e.g. the three synoptic gospels. Using such a concept for a software company indicates a global approach, a kwow-how and proven experience used to create innovative solutions. By having a global vision, using agile methods and mastering software advanced technologies, Synopse is able to create the software you need, not what computer or marketing specialists think of, and, sometimes, more than you ever expected.

Synopse projetcs

Synopse is proud to release some Delphi/Object pascal projects and tools as Open Source:

The Synopse database engine

Synopse is preparing a new open source database engine, founded on some successfull projects like Ictus Win or ROC. It's a whole new database engine, not SQL-based, but purely object/XML related.
The Synopse company is able to develop business rules and tuned solutions using the Synopse database engine. This software development can be made private by an appropriate contract, but will rely on the proven Synopse database engine.
This database engine is not yet released. It's not linked to the SQLite3 framework, but is a diverse project.

Open Source model

Synopse does believe in the Open Source approach:
Open source is a development method for software that harnesses the power of distributed peer review and transparency of process. The promise of open source is better quality, higher reliability, more flexibility, lower cost, and an end to predatory vendor lock-in.
Therefore, the company will provide some usefull components they use, from User Interface to communication layers, under a MPL/GPL/LGPL tri-license to the Delphi community.
