These days a great concern can be seen by the businesses on the decision of moving from proprietary software to open source but before that Techblue Software suggests to know the difference between both.
The closed source software where the the source code is not shared with the public for anyone to look at or change whereas the open source software is available for the general public to use and modify free of cost. So if you are looking for a software that suits the best to your business, switch to open source and take advantage of more flexibility.
Let’s start with the first and most important benefit of open source which is “Low Cost”. The open source setup involves less cost when compared to proprietary systems as it does not involve any license cost.
Along with that it gives the freedom to make the changes as per the requirements at any stage. This reduces the dependency on the software provider.
Open Source are easy to maintain in the long run due to its stable and robust nature however the maintenance policy of proprietary software is formulated by the owner of the product.
Though closed source is expensive, it has been taking care of the issues being faced by its users by providing support however Open Source is not behind.
Techblue Software has been assisting their clients too with OSS support !
