The increasing adoption of open source software is happening for a reason and whilst licensed softwares have their roles, we at flexiOPS believe strongly that open source thinking provides an enhanced path towards the solution.  

flexiOPS endeavours to engage and foster a vibrant open-source software community. To do this flexiOPS promotes the development of open-source tools and applications as well as actively producing and making these available to the community.  The flexiOPS philosophy is that a healthy open source business ecosystem will result in the advancement of cutting edge technology together with an enhanced user experience.

The benefits of open source are many and broad.  Speed and ability to adapt at the point of need, no licensing fees and a reduction in total cost of ownership provide clear advantages.  Further enhanced interoperability and the flexibility to fit the market need provides competitive advantage.

Below are some open source tools developed by flexiOPS.  Try them and let us know how they helped.
