Mertic says. "But when you can
see exactly what's happening, it
ÆÉÇ!É%Ã'ÇÃÉÄ%É$Ã&!îÃ'$ÉÃ!'&Ã
where the vulnerabilities are, and
you can react quicker."
The control that comes with
open-source models is another advantage. "When you have access to
the source code, you can see exactly
what's going on," Mertic says. "You
can control it. You can make changes to it." When you can control the
source code, you learn how to solve
your own problems. You can make
sure things are behaving exactly as
they're supposed to behave.
Open-source models also have
a lower cost of entry. "While it's a
common myth that open-source
software is free, in the sense of
licensing, that's partially true. But
it's still sold. Just about all of the
electronic devices we have today

contain open-source software. And
that lowers the cost for these products to come to market," he adds.
Organizations can optimize the
source code for their architecture
using open source. In a proprietary
model, you're stuck with what the
company says they're optimizing
for. In an open-source model, you
can optimize it for whatever case
you might have, and contribute in

from a code standpoint.

Industry Improvement
Several industries have reaped the

inception. The automotive industry, for example, is rapidly moving toward open-source models,
making almost all infotainment
systems in vehicles open source.
Car vendors are saving the money

they used to spend on licensing
technology. Open-source projects
like Automotive Grade Linux (AGL)
give them all a seat at the table.
They can collaborate, share with
one another and deliver better
products to consumers.
Vendors within the networking
industry are standardizing on open
source as well. Open source enables faster innovation, accelerated
production, higher quality products
and more. And if you're using Sling
TV, Direct TV or other providers,
you can thank open-source networking for making that happen.
With open source drastically dropping costs, vendors can bring those
solutions to market and offer them
at a competitive price.
Social media companies like
Google, Facebook, LinkedIn and
Twitter are all built on open-source
