Open source is fast becoming integral to business – a tangible alternative in helping organizations develop applications they need to achieve high reliability and quality at low cost of ownership. With a strong foundation of underlying tools and technologies, open source technology is proving itself as a powerhouse behind operational effectiveness, IT innovation and business value creation. Open Source Software development had its beginnings in UNIX open systems, but disseminated throughout the world of software technology mostly in the last decade. As organizations shifted large amounts of processing from large, mid-range proprietary platforms to more affordable open systems, open source systems and software have continued to evolve and drive evolution.
