Open source refers to the ability of the general public to contribute to and alter code for software and programming capabilities. Though not completely relegated to the realm of technology, it has become most widely associated with all things tech: the internet, software, and ecommerce. Open source has a history extending longer than the past few years, but has a relatively recent popular level of usage with programs like Joomla and Drupal, open source CMSs (content management systems) that offer collaborative opportunities for its developers. Other examples include Ubuntu, which is an operating system, PHP, a scripting language, and the browser, Firefox.
Benefits of open source and open source customization abound. The collaboration enabled by open source programs means that while there might be an initial investment, everyone using it after that has limited, potentially no, financial liability in the program and time is the only commitment. There is zero added cost to the newest users so this is an obvious boon.
Using open source software can help save your company time and money because the initial financial investment of purchasing software is non-existent. Additionally, there are not the restrictions associated with working with licensed software, so there is more flexibility to customize it for particular needs. Open source customization is ideal for businesses looking to specialize their website, spend less on the development and still have a professional experience, and save money on licensing fees. Finally, there are a plethora of source codes available on the internet making it easily customizable.
