Chal­lenges in the off­ing

OpenSource For You - - FOR U & ME -

Open source tech­nol­ogy is quickly gain­ing mo­men­tum in the In­dian busi­ness land­scape. Trained IT re­sources are very much in de­mand in the mar­ket as more and more In­dian man­u­fac­tur­ing com­pa­nies are get­ting aware about the ad­van­tages of adopt­ing the open source model. Ac­cord­ing to Balaran­jith, re­tain­ing trained tal­ent to run the open source ap­pli­ca­tions will be a huge chal­lenge for the com­pany in the near fu­ture. “On one side, it is re­ally good for the en­gi­neer who is work­ing on the so­lu­tion. But the chal­lenge for the en­ter­prise is to train and re­tain the top tal­ent. The se­cond ma­jor chal­lenge is whether the OSS will be able to up­date it­self with re­spect to the fast chang­ing tech­nol­ogy land­scape. For ex­am­ple, now busi­ness users want all so­lu­tions to work on their tablets. With OSS, es­pe­cially FOSS, the sup­port up­dates and en­hance­ments don’t come as fast as in the case

of a pro­pri­etary so­lu­tion. This will de­lay the agility of the IT team to al­ter it­self as tech­nol­ogy changes,” says Balaran­jith.
