The Power of Open Source

Open source is being embraced by leading organisations globally, not only due to its cost advantage, but to leverage the development advantages open source communities offer.

By its very essence, open source fuels enterprising organizations, because unlike proprietary systems, it enables greater innovation and differentiation, helping companies customize and manage platforms with more flexibility with the ability to rapidly develop and bring new services to the market with scalability and security.
