Today the era of open source for mission-critical systems is solidly underway. Open source is proving itself as a driving force behind enterprise IT innovation, operational effectiveness and business value creation. Although cost control remains a factor for choosing open source, the potential for organizations to benefit from improved software quality, reliability, security and feature sets has led many decision makers to seriously commit to using open source in the enterprise.

Open source is now integral to business, a real alternative to proprietary software. With a strong foundation of underlying tools and technologies, open source has emerged as a compelling building block for robust, cost-effective enterprise applications and infrastructure. Along with the other benefits, time to market can be reduced and enterprise IT budgets can be more effectively deployed since open source lowers total cost of ownership (TCO).

With its flexibility to simplify the development, design and implementation of business-critical applications—from productivity-enhancing collaboration and information-based portals to highpowered industry-centered applications— open source has hit prime time.
