Open Source Software
SolutionKeys recognizes that many enterprise level clients are looking for new ways to lower costs without compromising on innovation. We are ready to discuss Open Source Software (OSS) with clients as we believe it represents a significant shift in traditional enterprise IT.
OSS can help your business save money through lower licensing and maintenance costs without compromising on features or quality. OSS also presents opportunities for greater flexibility and a more expansive use in enterprise applications.
A Secure Open Source Environment
While the advantages are real, SolutionKeys will work with clients pursuing an OSS solution to ensure proper safeguards are in place addressing three key challenges:
- OSS can be easily obtained from disparate sources, raising integration challenges.
- OSS evolves quickly and provides no guarantees of built-in support.
- The interdependencies between discrete OSS products often result in overlapping software licenses and integration issues.
More and more businesses are using OSS within their enterprise in an effort to improve business and technology operations. SolutionKeys provide a broad range of assets and offerings around open source solutions, including migration and substitution solutions.
Our OSS solutions are delivered efficiently and with substantial cost savings over some proprietary alternatives. We can guide clients through OSS to deliver professional and secure deployments with a focus on open source stacks and open source governance.
Open source stacks are prepackaged architectures containing open source products supporting the organizationally-relevant technical needs of architecture domains, speeding up design, implementation andmaintenance of OSS-based solutions.
Open source governance establishes the required structures which define the control and management of OSS in an IT organization. This includes OSS license management and the setup of support capabilities strong enough to serve the needs of enterprise.
SolutionKeys has defined solution stacks for the areas that the accelerated adoption of open source can most benefit:
- Networking service
- Server virtualization
- Enterprise portals
- Content management
