We regularly evaluate our needs against the technologies we are using and are aware of alternatives. Because we are
involved in the strategy and development of most of the OSS, we are also aware of the threats for the OSS that we use.
Use of OSS affords us greater time to plan migration or alternative strategies. We have experience and expertise with
vended solutions that offered minimum time and therefore forced quick migration and alternative solutions that in some
cases have proven to not meet our needs.
