Avoid Vendor Lock-In

Open source software and open standards are the only reason we enjoy such a rich and diverse range of technologies and solutions to choose from.

While we recognise that not all needs can be met by an open source product, where possible System State IT promotes the use of open source as we believe consumers and business should not be locked into one particular vendor - as is the case with closed source software and proprietary standards.  By choosing a product that uses open standards you also give yourself the ability to switch providers more easily as it is likely that other solutions will also support that standard, making migration much more affordable and a much easier choice.
