Why Open Source?
We consider open source as the best way to create and develop software because having a strong and committed community can make a project a long-term success, and everyone involved benefits.
Advantages for customers
- No high licensing fees: benefit from future developments and software maintenance for free.
- Easily switch providers: thanks to open source, a customer can switch from VSHN to another provider at any time, if he wants to. We do not enforce lock-ins – we want to convince you through our quality work.
- Exchange know-how and experience: VSHN is known to collaborate beyond organizational boundaries and share knowledge following DevOps principles.
- Customizability: open source is known to have a much wider selection of extensions and plugins than commercial software.
- Reduced development effort: the ability to reuse parts of an open-source code greatly reduces the development effort required for custom developments.
- Security: vulnerabilities and bugs are usually found much faster in open source software than in commercial software.
