Topic: Open Source Technologies as a Business Enabler, its Risk and Reward.
-As Organizations continue to make the paradigm shift from Proprietary software to Open Source Software, the responsibility to develop custom software lies with the senior management to ensure that applications are developed in a controlled environment.
