10 Reasons why you need an Open Source Strategy

Filed under
OSS

1. Reduce dependency on closed source vendors. Stop being dragged through constant product upgrades that you are forced to do to stay on a supported version of the product. Aren't you tired of telling your customers to wait because you have to spend a month or two upgrading to version 7.01G of Product X and following it up with an incremental hot fix?

2. Your annual budget does not keep up with increases in software maintenance costs and increased costs of employee health care. Your budget remains flat, you bought five new tools last year with new annual costs in the range of 18-20% of the original purchase price for "gold support", and your employees' health care costs shot up 25% again. What gives?

3. More access to tools.

  • Tweak Your Fedora 22 Desktop Using Fedy And PostinstallerF
    None of the Linux distributions comes with all essential applications for daily usage, Agree? You have to install additional Repositories, softwares like Chrome, Flash player, Java or something in order to get a perfect distro for the daily usage. We can do it in two methods. First, you can manually search and install all the required softwares one by one, and the second one is you can use a tool that will help you to find and install all essential applications from one place. Which method would you prefer? I prefer the second method most, not because it is easy, but also it saves some time.
