Open Source Development

Backend Programming Services | April 24th, 2018 | Open Source Development

Many individuals and businesses that are building custom web applications  are using open-source software like Linux. One of the main advantages to using this sort of software is that it is free to use. Despite the fact that this software is free to use, there's many other benefits to using it. Here's some reasons why you should turn to RP AXIS for your open source development for your website, blog, or other online endeavors.

Security

It is quite secure to use. Since there’s many people using this sort of code to develop applications online, a lot of the problems with the code are found and corrected. Other types of software are released to the public, but always have a lot of problems because they've not been tested thoroughly by a wide range of individuals. Open source software tends to be more secure and stable because it's been tested and then fixed before other individuals use it. Software that comes from corporations is usually only fixable by that corporation.  Open source software can be fixed by anyone because they have access to all the coding and how that software works. This transparency means the software is secure and stable.

 

Quality

Another reason that people are turning to open source software development is that the software tends to be better. Regular software created by a corporation is only worked on by just a handful of developers. Open source software is potentially created by thousands of developers, so the programs can be improved over time easily. When you use open source software you tend to get software that is of a higher quality because more people have been working on it for a long period of time to develop the best software possible. Many of these open source software programs have many enhancements and new features that are added to the program's over time.

They Can be Customized

Another reason you might want to look to open source software development is that the software can be customized to meet the needs of your business. The code is open, so you just have to modify the code functionality to meet the needs that your business has. You can't do this with company proprietary software because it's set the way the company wants it to be. You cannot change the code of software you buy from a company because it's their software and you have to use it the way they intended. With open source software you can change it anyway you want to work in the best way to suit your individual company needs.

Flexible

Whenever you use proprietary software you like a lot of flexibility. This software tends to be rigid and it's only designed in the way the company intended. You can't change anything or use it for another purpose because it's so rigid. Open source software is very flexible, and it can even run on older hardware systems. You decide when you want to upgrade the software. When you buy a proprietary software, the company decides when the software needs to be upgraded. In many cases you have to buy an entirely new software program to get access to the upgraded features which can be quite a financial burden.
