Open source software can be obtained by businesses for little or no cost. Developed and supported globally by IT professionals it provides an alternative to more traditional forms of proprietary software. Open source software is available for most business needs, including content management systems, databases, office tools, operating systems, internet related applications and IT security. Open source software solutions began as a marketing campaign for free software. Open source software can be defined as computer software for which the human-readable source code is made available under a copyright license (or arrangement such as the public domain) that meets the Open Source Definition. This permits users to use, change, and improve the software, and to redistribute it in modified or unmodified form.
Whatever applications your business needs - whether it is a word processing solution, accounting software, customer relationship management software or website applications - you'll find it easy to find an open source version. Some popular open source software options include:
