Open Source Advantages

Open Source standard software components which are well written and maintained are readily available for most needs. Operating systems, network applications, databases and web applications are just some of the categories. You don't pay for the base software, but you may want to use programmers and consultants to guide you through the process.

We can improve your business systems, integrating your current systems with new applications or porting your applications to more appropriate platforms. The obvious advantage to open source is the purchase price and the lack of on-going licencing fees. But you will find other reasons: improved security, response times for updates, total control of your application (no vendor lock in).

Here are some of the services we offer to help you take advantage of open source:
