Open source issues
Open source can be at best, a great asset, but if not properly understood, a commercial danger.
It has great benefits; no-one wants to reinvent something that has already been done. It means speedier development and we understand that makes life easier for you, but failing to recognise the limitations of this model could have a huge detrimental impact on the commerciality of your products, sales and your business overall.
Having proper processes in place to know what OS components are being used, knowing what licences apply and making sure those who use OS components understand the implications is vital.
Our IT team can explain the pitfalls and make sure you make the right decisions for your business. Talk to Paul Berwin or one of the specialist Digital team today to find out more: 01423 509000 or email Digital@berwin.co.uk.
