Commercial-quality Web-Apps with Open-Source

OPENLABS - ICT Services & Web Technologies

The Open-Source term gained hold with the rise of the Internet and the attendant need for massive retooling of the computing source code. Open-source code is typically created as a collaborative effort in which programmers improve upon the code and share the changes within the community. Open-source sprouted in the technological community as a response to proprietary software owned by corporations.

Open-Source software is often developed in a Public, Collaborative manner. In production and development, Open-Source as a development model promotes:

  • Universal access via free license to a product’s design.
  • Universal redistribution of the software, including subsequent improvements to it by anyone.

With flexible deployment, the use of Open-Source components allows companies to minimize risks designing and developing software in the form of interoperable Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA). They can thus avoid relying on one unique supplier and adapt more easily to new technologies or new business models. Open-Source libraries permit ongoing development of Free Software, distributed under GNU/GPL license, whether social, institutional, personal or merchant.

Several Open-Source products have demonstrated longevity. In this case the developer community is sizeable and committed to improving their project for the long-term. As a result, there is scalable improvement of the code and user interface over time, making the product as a whole more structured and safe.
