Open Source

Nowadays open source software is widely used to design and develop critical systems and infrastructure and this phenomenon is on the rise. Open source software is the driving force behind a whole series of really important innovations today in IT and plays a critical role in ensuring that the products developed are functionally efficient and offer real value for businesses.

One of the benefits of going open source is that the shorter time required to develop open source software significantly reduces ownership and usage costs.  Open source software is now an integral part of the business operations of modern-day companies, offering a truly reliable alternative solution to licensed software. 

While the cost factor continues to be a critical issue in deciding whether or not to go open source, the ever-increasing quality of such software, its reliability, robust security and functionality, coupled with flexibility and ease of management, design capabilities and the sheer range of critical applications now available, have led many IT procurement managers to opt for open source software for their company’s business operations.

Just some of the most popular instances when open source software is used are listed below:
1) When the license for standard software for application servers, databases or operating systems is about to run out or when critical content management and e-commerce infrastructure needs to be overhauled.

2) When the technology currently used is up for review and/or has to be re-structured for technical or business reasons, or because of cost reductions.

3) When open source software available and the sheer pace at which the software is being improved by countless user groups has begun to make the open source path a better option than standard licensed software.
