Financial directors are very cautious at the best of times, but when budgets are tight during a recession, they increasingly want to make sure that any IT expenditure will lead to increased business performance, cost rationalisation, greater profitability and ROI.
Boards are typically concerned about:
- Problems that could arise when moving to a Linux operating system
- Myths that (wrongly) depict Open Source as insecure
- Whether Open Source operating systems offer a high level of reliability
- Whether the skills, knowledge and resources are available to undertake a Linux migration and to support Open Source software and operating systems
So before thinking about migration to Linux, it’s crucial to establish a business case and to gain access to the skills, knowledge, expertise and resources you need to persuade senior executives that migration is the right approach. That’s because they are more interested in hearing about the business benefits than learning which technology platform is being used.
