Why choose open source software for your DAM?
2nd November 2016
Whether you're an experienced developer, or an IT novice, you'll need to consider whether open source or proprietary software is the right choice for your digital asset management system. The term 'open source' describes software whose code is readily available to download, modify and develop at little to no charge, whilst proprietary vendors keep details of their code private and commercially sell their product 'as is.'
To help you to make a decision between the two, ResourceSpace has produced a new white paper, 'Open Source VS. Proprietary Software.'
The guide is free to download, and covers the many opportunities that open source software presents for customisation and collaboration. In it, we take a look at:
- Definitions and comparisons of open source and proprietary software
- Ways of evolving and modifying open source software
- The community-based approach to developing open source software
- How using open source software can help you to learn wider IT skills
- The security benefits of open source platforms
If you're choosing between vendor driven proprietary software, or accessible and affordable open source, our latest white paper will help you to make an informed decision. And once you've made your selection, why not visit www.resourcespace.com/whitepapers for other informative resources to help you make the most of your digital asset management.
