What is Open source?
Open source products such as Umbraco, Drupal and WordPress are constantly increasing among our customers du to their lower support costs, increased flexibility, easier integration and shorter implementation time. Open source platforms are preferred if the company wants to be supplier independent and to control the further development of the system itself without being locked into future licensing costs.
