Behind your electronic window to the world usually lies some pretty complicated technology. Choices are difficult to make, and usually you are guided by the experience of your chosen supplier and their technical skills. Open-Source Software, (that's software designed and developed by a network of professional enthusiasts worldwide), has proven to be the success story of the internet world. In its latest evolution, web design platforms like Wordpress, Drupal and Joomla offer customers power, flexibility and reliability.

Writing software is an expensive business, and for those of you who can remember Y2K, even the smallest error can lead to big problems like security flaws or financial errors. Working with open source technology provides a host of benefits.

The OSS development approach has helped produce reliable, high quality software quickly and inexpensively. Besides, it offers the potential for a more flexible technology and quicker innovation. It is said to be more reliable since it typically has thousands of independent programmers testing and fixing bugs of the software. It is flexible because modular systems allow programmers to build custom interfaces, or add new abilities to it and it is innovative since open source programs are the product of collaboration among a large number of different programmers. The mix of divergent perspectives, corporate objectives, and personal goals speeds up innovation.
