As a leading IT solution provider in the Middle East, LINK Development is pioneering in providing “value-for-money” Open Source solutions to help businesses improve processes and experience smarter enterprise content management.
Our understanding of the power of open source is our main drive to adopt the development and integration of solutions specifically tailored to fit the needs of almost any environment that is simple, flexible, secure & affordable.
The benefits of open source solutions include
Using open source software can help you minimize your expenses; it is free to use, distribute, and modify where you can save on licensing and maintenance fees.
Lack of portability, expensive license fees and inability to customize software are some of the other disadvantages.
Open source is not dependent on the company or author that originally created it. Even if the company fails, the code continues to exist and be developed by its users.
Unlike closed copyrighted software, OSS can be altered and extended by any developer. This provides organizations with freedom from “vendor lock-in” and assures long-term sustainability.
Open source software enables anyone to examine for security flaws. The availability of source code also facilitates in-depth security reviews and audits.
Anyone can fix bugs as they are found, and users do not have to wait for the next release.
