The technology choice should involve always taking into consideration the latest advancement and future perspective. AngularJS is among the technologies.

  • Longevity from independence :Open source enables communities to build the software collaboratively. Open stack is built by dozens of companies and individual volunteer, providing customer certainty that, no matter what happens to any individual vendor, there will always be a vendor available to provide support With open source, a business makes a long-term investment in the development team's efforts to implement the product. Access to the source code ensures that you will always be able to hire someone from the pool of contributors to keep your deployment alive as long as you need it.
  • Security:Security is a complicated thing, which is why open development is a key factor and a precondition for creating secure solutions. And security is getting more important every day. When development happens in the open, you can directly verify if a vendor is actively pursuing security and watch how it treats security issues. The ability to study the source and perform independent code audits makes it possible to find and fix security issues early.
  • More Customer Focus: Because users and customers can directly see and get involved in development, open source projects are typically more aligned with the user’s needs than the closed source software, which often focuses on ticketing checkboxes for the marketing team. You will also notice that open source project tend to develop in a wider way. Whereas a commercial vendor might focus on one specific thing. A community has many "irons in the fire" and is working on a wide range of features, all of interest to an individual or small group of contributing companies or individuals. This leads to fewer easily marketable releases, as it isn't all about one thing, rather a mix-and-match of various improvements. But it creates a far more valuable product for the users.
  • Better Support:A proprietary vendor is often the one and only party who can help you if there are problems. If they don't offer support the way you need it or charge a huge premium for adjustments your business needs, tough luck. Support for proprietary software is a typical "lemon market." With open source, the vendor either provides great support or others will fill the gap—it's the free market at its finest, ensuring you get the very best support possible.
