Open Source Software can provide a huge advantage in initial investment costs on a website, as well as eliminating the recurring annual maintenance costs for this site.
What are the pitfalls of Open Source Software:
- You need the expertise and experience to evaluate whether a solution has the backing of a team and community which will survive and thrive.
- The ability to evaluate new releases and patches to determine whether, when and how to install them
- The ability to identify and debug issues which may come up, as there is no one in the community being ‘paid’ to solve your problems.
Fortunately, these are all easy and straight forward activities for technologists experienced in Open Source software. At Our Virtual CTO, we can handle all of these perceived ‘risks’, in a very low cost way for you. You can get all of the benefits of the Open Source movement for your business, without having to become a technologist yourself.
