SourceEdge board approved to foray into new business line to focus on open source technologies and enterprise mobility for global enterprises.
The era of proprietary software may be far from over, but its dominance is being challenged by open source technologies. Many large enterprises and mid-size organisations are making a shift towards open source.This is revealed by Black Duck Software’s Future of Open Source Survey 2014. Over 50% of the respondents in the survey said that they were planning to use open source for managing their internal operations. (See the source)
The enterprise customers are getting inclined towards open source technologies because they are confident that they can get more productivity from such solutions and some of the open source technologies are as efficient as proprietary software.
Under this new initiative, SourceEdge is planning to build a practice that will focus on delivering enterprise solutions based on open source technologies, frameworks, tools, platforms and enterprise mobility solutions around iOS, Android, Windows platform and wider range of mobile and smart phone devices.
