Open source software (OSS) represents a significant shift in traditional enterprise IT. It can speed time to market and deliver substantially lower licensing and maintenance costs than other approaches. Open source software offers comparable features and quality as well as greater deployment flexibility, enabling a more expansive use in enterprise applications. While the advantages are real, organizations pursuing open source must ensure proper safeguards are in place to address the unique challenges it presents—including integration, IT support and system interdependencies.
As organizations implement OSS within the enterprise as part of a continuous effort to improve business and technology operations, they should aim to professionalize open source adoption, dissemination and management by focusing on effective open source solution stacks and governance structures.
