Open Source software has significant advantages when compared to commercial products:
Most of Open Source software available today doesn't entitle you to pay any fee or royalty. From a business standpoint, the purchase cost of software is only a single factor as the TCO (Total Cost of Ownership) is actually what matters. Other factors remaining equal, the solution with the lowest TCO is generally what is most desirable and recommended.
Statements favoring low TCO for open source software are:
Auditability is considered to be one of the many benefits of Open Source software. Closed-source software compels it's users to have faith in the trader while claims are made for qualities like adherencing to standards, security, flexibility, freedom from backdoors in the face of prospective changes. Those claims simply remain in case the source code is unavailable. The publication of the source code assures users of the software that there is some basis for those claims.
Whether this adopts the form of a cursory and informal inspection or more stringent auditing, it's clear that third party inspection is not possible without access to the source. Now, the industry does not assert on third party inspection, but it is possible that as open source patterns become more popular, expectations of audits will increase.
Flexibility and Freedom
Open Source software offers further flexibility via freedom.
Freedom from a single developer
Software developers may go out of business or they may randomly decide to discontinue the development of a particular product. How would your business handle things if it depended on such a product? Open-source software solves this problem. It gives you not only the right to use the software you already possess, but the capacity to continue to use it according to your changing needs.
Freedom to modify your software
WIth Open Source software, you're not confined to what a particular company believes you require. Proprietary software vendors cater to several companies, especially their own. Open-source software can be adjusted to the way you do business. It is generally within the resources of all but smaller organizations to improve Open Source software to fit their own requirements.
