Interoperability: The end users’ biggest fear about open-source

Filed under
OSS

The Open Solutions Alliance, a non-profit group backed by a number of commercial open-source suppliers has found that found interoperability is a foremost concern among open-source-software customers.

The group, which includes CollabNet, EnterpriseDB and others, said in a statement that if its members overcome interoperability challenges, they stand to "out-Microsoft Microsoft by offering a fully interoperable suite of business tools."

The issue of interoperability was highlighted in a survey conducted for the group.

"We think interoperability has to be a core feature [of open-source software] from the very beginning," OSA's president, Dominic Sartorio, said.
