Integrative finds its roots in integrating solutions and technologies of different vendors and suppliers. The last 10 years, a lot of these solutions and technologies come out of the open-source camp, something we cheer on as open-source based solutions fit perfectly in our evangelism of using non-proprietary solutions.
Now, open-source is not for everyone and certainly not for the faint-of-heart. Although community support works great for technologists and the digitally literate, in the commercial world of service level agreements and recovery time objectives, it is not something that can be depended on. Therefore we are glad to see that many software companies embrace the open-source software and back it with commercial support to make it a suitable solution for enterprise IT departments.
