Open source software (OSS) has come a long way since pioneers unleashed the development in the late 80s. These days you don't have to look hard to see examples of OSS being utilized. Businesses use TYPO3 CMS for their web instance, Linux as their operating system, MySQL as their database: it’s an act of liberation.

OSS and the Call for Professional Support

Not too long ago, proprietary software ruled the roost when it came to websites. Meanwhile, the software landscape has been radically transformed by open source software. With this development, the call for professional support became louder and louder.

OSS vs. Them: Redefining Your Competitive Model

Open source software (OSS) projects often find themselves battling against each other when they should be collaborating. A win for one OSS solution is a victory for us all. Instead of fighting, we should be celebrating each other's wins and tackling our common enemy: proprietary software.

Choosing Open Source Software is an Act of Liberation

Open source software (OSS) has come a long way since pioneers unleashed the development in the late 80s. These days you don't have to look hard to see examples of open source software being embraced and utilized. Whether businesses use TYPO3 CMS for their web instance, Linux as their operating system, MySQL as their database, or Piwik for their web analytics, more and more companies are liberating themselves from commercial software.

Open source software isn’t about saving money, it’s about gaining control over your digital world. And today, open source software (OSS) is omnipresent and firmly rooted in today’s business world.
