Open Roads, Open Future, Open Source
We do have a client using open source. Quite a large customer and internationally very well known. Although we are platform agnostic the majority of our clients are using some flavor of SharePoint.
I just read an article referring to the government that open source was quite well accepted and becoming more ubiquitous, from web sites to operating systems to blogs. Although initially embraced by the financial and intelligence community primarily due to high performance and not necessarily low cost, the tables are turning where lower cost is driving adoption in government.
According to Red Hat CEO James Whitehurst, about 50% of all operating systems are open source. From a marketing perspective I would be interested in your feedback regarding how you are using open source in your organization, if you are considering it, and what are the reasons?
Looking forward to your thoughts.
