OSS

There was a time when open source software was almost inseparable from the image of altruistic, community-loving developers, coding away in command line interfaces in a darkened room. But those days are long gone. Sleek open source applications have made their way into the enterprise and sometimes give the proprietary giants a run for their money.

“Don’t be afraid to get your hands on it and do a proof-of-concept. It will go a long way to address any concerns the business might have, and to show them the benefits open source can provide.”

That is exactly what Cross did before rolling out a Red Hat/JBoss solution in 2008. New Zealand Lotteries Commission uses Red Hat in conjunction with JBoss for its MyLotto environment, which is its corporate online presence, as well as an online transactional e-commerce site, he says. The organisation also uses Red Hat servers for its gaming environment.
