Open Source is on Top

Posted: 02 Aug 2013 04:47 PM PDT

After a record setting year and an exciting conference season, no one can argue that open source is on the rise with no immediate signs of stopping. JavaWorld is in agreement and covers the latest open source news in their article, “Open Source Races to the Top.”

Their story begins:

“Last week’s OSCON conference served to remind us that open source software is setting the pace. We’ve come a very long way from the old saw that ‘open source doesn’t innovate.’ Instead, you might ask: Is innovation in enterprise software happening anywhere else other than in open source land?”

Open source is leading in innovation, but OSCON helped to prove that open source leads in other areas as well. From security to implementation to cost-effectiveness, open source leaders like LucidWorks are proving that open source is the total package. LucidWorks products can be implemented on-site, in the Cloud, or in a hybrid format. LucidWorks marries the best of open source with what organizations see as the safety and security of proprietary, and customers are very satisfied.
