About

OS Accelerate provides a

forum to enable enterprise businesses

to take advantage of leading

commercial open technologies.

We've kicked off OS Accelerate to enable enterprise companies to learn and take advantage of leading commercial open technologies.

Our approach is to create a community to innovate together. We've partnered with the companies behind best of breed open software to help us grow.

We’re working with the likes of Acquia, Alfresco, MuleSoft, and Google to build a community of open partners and innovators to share ideas and experiences, post questions, and provide value to the enterprise.

We're also creating modules to connect open technologies, and contributing them back to the community.

Security

Security

Open collaboration means that users are constantly evaluating and critiquing the code to ensure it’s secure. This also means each contributor is extremely cautious with code they submit, knowing it’s open to public audience for criticism.

Community Support

Community Support

Have a question? Run into an issue? Vibrant communities of developers back open source technologies; blogging, answering questions and fixing bugs.

Quality

Quality

Open source software is continually evolving as developers add to it and modify it to improve quality. And with more professionals peer-reviewing and overseeing the code’s integrity, bugs are found & fixed early.

Cost

Cost

Open source software is available without a licensing fee, which makes it a cost-effective solution. Many of the upfront and ongoing costs associated with developing a site are non-existent as compared to commercial options.

Customizability

Customizability

With full access to the code, you can customize open source software to suit your unique needs.

Security

Freedom

Open source software frees organizations from vendor lock-in. Because the codebase is open and there is a large number of developers with expertise in the technology, you are not tied to vendor’s roadmaps, prices & priorities.
