With the many business and government organizations that now use open source software such as Linux, it’s becoming increasingly clear that price is not the only advantage such software holds.

Why Open Source ?

»Posted by on Jan 9, 2013 in Blog | 0 comments

The question “Why open source?” really encompasses two questions for the enterprise to consider: “Why use open source software?” and “Why should I develop my software in a community-based, open source way?” Inherent in that second question is the issue of what enterprises can learn from the successes of open source communities. So, who should care about the answers to these questions? Well, virtually everyone. As of 2008, 85 percent of enterprises were using open source software, according to Gartner. That percentage has probably ticked upward since then, so the answers to these questions are relevant to just about all enterprises today.
