Swifter Deployment / Customizability:
Using an open source approach, commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) products can be readily adapted to realize shorter deployment timelines without sacrificing quality.
Frameworks such as Apache Hadoop allow for more storage and greater processing of large scale data-sets on clusters of existing commodity hardware.
Save money by reducing or eliminating expensive vendor product licenses, and cut-down on the costs associated with longer development timelines.
If designed properly, open source solutions can expand and scale over time, eliminating supplier or infrastructure component dependencies.
With open source you don’t have to wait on patch updates - you can make them internally as needed. The source code is also available for peer review.
Because there is no dependency on a particular product or infrastructure component, open source software can be attached to legacy systems.
With products developed using an open source approach, you
own the solution.
