Implementing an open source environment is considered the best way to save time and money for any organization or business enterprise. Adapting to an open source environment at the onset can be an arduous task. But with the help from a reputed solutions provider, the implementation can be done smoothly. There are plenty of advantages in open source environment, starting from a one-time investment to time and cost saving efforts.
The major advantages in implementing open source environment are:
Since most of the Open Source is dependent on user comments and feedback, it allows users to see, review and modify it for enhanced performance. Many organizations are not open to a level involvement with their products. Any improvisation of the product is always not satisfactory due to lack of transparency. These issues hinder advances in creating a community around the software. An active participation of users enriches the final product to a great extent.
Unlike propriety software, in Open Source environment, developers ensure they release the software code. It ensures that the community tests the software for possible errors and bugs. As a result, Open Source indirectly creates a dynamic environment where the final software is often stable.
To meet expectations from everyone, developers require views, ideas and comments from people engaged. The wide network community, besides the Open Source, contributes to the success of Open Source implementation over the past decade.
Advantages over propriety software implementation

This made DotnetNuke effective in creating ecommerce systems, intranet and custom web applications.
