Why Open Source?
Open Source software builds upon the collaboration of many people in a community. Experience shows that the open source model results in higher-quality software which is more secure and easier to integrate.
The main benefits in working with open standards and open source code include
- Full flexibility to develop new, customized features and functionality
- Reduction of vendor lock-in
- Substantially lower costs
- Updates released at regular intervals
Any disadvantages of Open Source are countered by the availability of VAR (Value-Added resellers) such as CrossLang, which provide reliability, security and high quality support.
