Your reasons for choosing open source software were simple — flexibility, innovation, collaboration and cost reduction. However, as open source continues to grow in your enterprise, getting support isn't so simple, especially when you're running multiple packages at once.
Hiring expensive consultants, mining through OSS communities for answers, or seeking support from multiple service providers can all add up to increased costs, risks and time — possibly defeating your purpose for choosing open source in the first place. And you can’t afford production delays caused by downtime.
Whether you are using community editions, commercial products, individual packages or a complex software stack, IBM can support your entire open source ecosystem.
