At the contrary, the Open Source solutions are more useful for guide the innovation processes of the operations core and also their adoption in mission-critical processes is prevailing.

“…the Open Source is observed as an alternative tool for the software management, not only reducing the costs but even guaranteed an easy reduction of the costs, no necessary asking permissions and without a consistent amount of money…”
