    The value of OSS is undeniable. OSS offers organisations greater flexibility and cost savings. However, it needs to be understood that no software is completely bullet proof and OSS shares the same inherent risks as traditional software.

    The rapid pace of modern software development has allowed businesses to transform the way they run – yielding superior customer experiences, greater efficiencies, faster time to market and better cost optimisation. Software has enabled companies to disrupt their business environments by leveraging the agility and speed of change that only software can deliver. The companies that thrive today are those that realize that software innovation can drive agility, create differentiation and provide competitive advantages.

    With software so predominant, the use of Open Source Software (OSS) has grown in popularity over the last few years. The enticement of OSS is undeniable, and the vibrant open source community has rallied, resulting in significant contributions to the open source movement. As a result, developers are increasingly turning to OSS to aid their organization’s transformation.
