BT does Open Source

Nothing else needs to be said – read this:

Want cost benefits? Well, the savings in terms of licensing are dwarfed by the cost of vendor lock-in. This can tip the balance in a business case.

Want support? The communities established around popular open source projects provide richer, quicker support than most vendors.

Want flexibility? How can you get more flexible than being able to adapt the code to your specific needs yourself? And choose the open standards that make complex technology stacks fit together?

Want reassurance that open source is ready for the enterprise? It’s already there. Linux, Apache, Firefox, MediaWiki – they’re all widespread and best of breed. That’s the start of a long list.

Pass this on – it’s going mainstream 🙂
