Open Source PHP

Various enterprise customers are increasingly embracing open source software for certain specific software deployments.

Software contains diverse strengths and weaknesses, depending on your point of view; this is true for purchased licenses as well as for Open Source software and in-house programs. Different aspects of the software are crucial to management, users, and developers.

External quality aspects, such as functionality, usability, performance, security, and reliability matter most to users. Developers and system administrators care more for the internal quality of the system. The program code should be easy to read, easy to understand, easy to change, and easy to extend. When this is not the case, even changes that seem trivial will pose great challenges to the developers, for instance they may result in unanticipated and unwanted side effects.

Above all else, economic aspects matter to the management. These aspects can – despite going unnoticed for a long period of time – be affected by the internal quality. Open Source products are an attractive option that is used in many enterprises. Whether the system is planned as an enterprise-critical system from the outset or later becomes enterprise-critical, when software development stalls, the problems pile up quickly.

It becomes more and more difficult, and thus more and more expensive, to add new features into a system where components influence one another. A high change frequency, sudden changes to the size of the user base, and fast performance optimizations become impossible or require tremendous effort. In environments like these, dealing with security becomes a very difficult problem.
