Apache ServiceMix is most definitely an ESB, not just an enabling technology.

Hi,

I am working at a big huge company (400.000 + employees).

The main reason to stay with Microsoft and SAP - from a business perspective - is:
a) these vendors are big enough to support us for 10-20 years; they wont disappear easily
b) if we have problems with their products, we can call 24/7 user help desks
c) there are ten thousands of developers worldwide, from which we can choose our external resources

Open Source is interesting from a initial financial view (it is free on the first spot).
But the main concern is not money, but business continuity.

OpenSource is often driven by little teams and unclear responsibility.

Sorry, but that is the truth. OpenSource is nice for little experiments, but not for big companies.

Greetings
Bernd

I agree that many organizations don't know how much open source they're really using. That's one of the reasons why OpenLogic founded The Open Source Census (www.osscensus.org). Enterprises that participate in the Census scan a representative sampling of machines for open source software, then anonymously contribute the scan reports to the Census website. Once scans have been submitted, enterprises can login to the Census website to view reports on their open source usage and compare themselves to organizations with similar demographics. By participating in the Census, you can better understand your company's usage of open source as well as help promote the use of open source in enterprises around the world.
