Open Source Technology
Open Source technology means freedom - complete visibility, support for industry standards, and the ability to pick and choose the code that best meets your requirements.
CIGNEX Datamatics offers our customers a wealth of expertise and experience covering a wide range of Open Source technology. We are firmly vendor-neutral, with a focus on identifying the platform that best meets client requirements rather than how a preferred platform might be modified to accommodate a subset of needs. We've built close, collaborative relationships with Open Source technology providers, and we continue to work regularly with all major vendors to bring the advantages of Open Source to our customers.
Why Open Source Technology?
Better, Economical Technology
CIGNEX Datamatics solutions help businesses keep IT costs down, ensuring that funds can be directed to more critical business functions. Open Source is, by definition, available at low costs to any and all who want to deploy it, drastically eliminating exorbitant proprietary licensing fees and reducing the cost of customization and ongoing maintenance. Our customers get the functionality and integration they're looking for, customized for their needs, at a lower cost, resulting in a dramatically improved ROI
Open Source Is a Community Movement
Part of the Open Source philosophy is "giving back" to the community, and regularly contributing code or best practices so that Open Source technology continually improves with use. CIGNEX Datamatics is a key contributor to the Open Source movement, and our strong relationships within the community ensure that we are working in the latest technological initiatives and accompanying implementation expertise.
CIGNEX Datamatics Open Source solutions mean freedom - multiple standards-based technology platforms from which to choose, numerous support options, a collaborative development community and no dependence on software versions or obsolescence schedules. We've been a driving force in helping to shape the Open Source community and technology, to establish and maintain standards, and to ensure that our customers have access to the best possible solutions.
