1. “Why use open source software?”
2. “Why should I develop my software in a community-based, open source way?”
As of 2008, 85 percent of enterprises were using open source software. That percentage has almost certainly increased since then. The superiority of open source software met or exceeded the expectations of 92 percent of respondents to a latest survey conducted by Forrester Research. Meanwhile, 87 percent of respondents said that open source software delivered the cost savings they were hoping for. For any firm nothing speaks louder than economic gains and the sort of monetary gain that comes with the many other benefits of open source development is a catch for the big as well as the small fish.
Open source has been verified to offer superior value, lesser costs, and enhanced security, addressing the most central project considerations today. When corporations take up on open source, they more or less start to shift away from a number of of the more traditional silo-based development tools and development processes. This does not imply in any way that these traditional softwares are not good enough, or that they are not right for your business solutions. However if you have product that does what three or four do and that too in less time and less money which would be your natural choice?
In addition to everything else that has been said, benefits of open source include convenience in increased geographic distance between team members, architectural requirements for more modular software, and an Agile development cycle to link and make available business requirements — as well as development, test, and deployment information — to all of the stakeholders of the application development and management lifecycle. Benefits of open source development are not only helpful in providing services to the end-users but also in execution of business internally in the most smooth way possible.
