This is an interesting article (part) from computerworld, showing the turn to open source systems. While opensources software is heavily used by small-mid size business for many years, more and more big enterprizes and organizations make theturn. Reagrding Drupal CMS, allready some of the best and more important sites of the web use it.
"IDG News Service - Businesses that want to trade in their old systems for new IT should consider moving to open source first before thinking about a proprietary system, according to a report commissioned by transaction processing services provider Amadeus IT Group.
While a transition from closed and proprietary systems to an open approach can be time consuming and challenging, businesses should consider making the move, according to the report Open for business.
Open source software and IT infrastructure are ready to be used as critical computing systems in the enterprise, said British IT specialist and study author Jim Norton in a blog post announcing the report.
By migrating to open source, enterprises can benefit from greater and swifter innovation, improved supplier responsiveness and enhanced systems accessibility and support, Norton wrote.
IT providers and enterprises can benefit from their expertise, he said.
Another advantage is the lower total cost over the lifetime of the use of the software, Norton said. While open source software is usually distributed under a free license, enterprises still must pay for maintenance and system management. While analysis should be carried out on a case-by-case basis, industry lore is that it is possible for enterprises to save around 20%, Norton said."
