Catalyst IT is a strong advocate of the benefits open source software can deliver to our clients. Open source means freedom from licence fees, freedom from vendor lock-in and, most importantly, freedom to innovate.
What is open source software?
It’s about freedom. Source code defines how a software application works. Free and open source software is code licensed to allow you to copy it and customise it as much as you like, which means you never have to depend on one person or supplier to make sure the software does exactly what you want. You get freedom from licence fees, freedom from vendor capture and, most importantly, freedom to innovate.
