Overview

Today the era of open source for mission-critical systems is solidly underway. Open source is proving itself as a driving force behind enterprise IT innovation, operational effectiveness and business value creation. Open Source Software continues to be one of the most viable and leading levers for cost optimization. The overall adoption trends and economics around OSS confirm that this technology is making significant headway as an IT Platform even for mission-critical business applications.

Some of the key drivers for adoption of OSS solutions include:

  • Substantial reduction in total-cost-of-ownership of proprietary solutions
  • Significantly lower support costs compared to proprietary software
  • Increased agility through shorter development time and faster time-to-market
  • Vendor independence and flexibility
  • Open standards
