The Case for Open Source
The current widespread mindset of “more with less” within corporations has given way for open source, a community-driven software development approach, to move into the spotlight as a viable next-generation solution for the Application Development and Maintenance (ADM) space.
Open source promises benefits along multiple dimensions – lower costs, accelerated product advancements, and improved customer satisfaction. Although some corporations’ misconceptions have kept them from capitalizing on its potential value, many other companies have recognized the opportunity at hand and have been able to capture significant value through open source. As adoption continues to grow, Brazil, offering a wealth of talent and a uniquely compelling value proposition, has emerged as the prime destination for open source activity.
Join us for a one-hour webinar during which a panel of industry thought leaders will highlight key benefits and misconceptions related to open source, discuss location trends that cast Brazil as a key player in the open source movement, and review a practical case study in which open source in Brazil was effective in reducing costs and improving service quality for a major market player.
