Why Open source matters ? = no lock in
Why Open source = no lock in matters ?
With open source, the code is constantly improved by the community and reach higher quality standard over time. So the larger and the older the community, the better is the quality of the code!!
Open source code is transparent and therefore can be analyzed by anyone at anytime. It means that any security vulnerability can easily be discovered and fixed by the community.
Open source code guarantees independence for our customers: they can add functionalities, or decide to internalise part of the development.
