Burlington, MA (July 6th, 2004) - DAMICON, an information technology services company, has published an article on the website of ComputerWorld, an American Society of Business Publication Editors 2004 magazine of the year. It is called "The Top 5 Objections To Adopting Open Source". The article, written by Vin D'Amico, President of DAMICON, discusses the most frequently cited reasons for not adopting open-source software. These commonly raised objections center around support, functionality, licensing, release cycles and road maps. The article examines these issues and suggests ways of dealing with them.
According to Vin D'Amico, "There are far more similarities than differences between open-source software and commercial software. Open source represents a different model for how software can be developed, distributed and supported. Once you understand the model, hundreds of new software choices become available to you."
The article is must reading for every information technology manager and software developer. A copy of the article can be found at this link.
Vin D'Amico is Founder and President of DAMICON, your ADJUNCT CIO. He is an expert in leveraging open software to drive growth. DAMICON provides Freelance Technical Writing, Disaster Response Planning, and Security Management services to firms throughout New England.
