Qedward (2499046) writes "Businesses that want to trade in their old systems for new IT should consider moving to open source first before thinking about a proprietary system, according to a report commissioned by transaction processing services provider Amadeus IT Group.

While a transition from closed and proprietary systems to an open approach can be time consuming and challenging, businesses should consider making the move, according to the report Open for business.

British IT specialist and study author Jim Norton said that open source software and IT infrastructure is ready to be used as critical computing systems in the enterprise.

By migrating to open source, enterprises can benefit from greater and swifter innovation, improved supplier responsiveness and enhanced systems accessibility and support, Norton said."
