Open Source & Open Standards

 Evolution driven by collaboration


At GMX TEC we are adopters of the open source mind frame and collective. Open Source is the driving force in some of the most amazing advancements in computing and science. It is now a proven fact that open source has become a major force in the industry. Open source software is used by everyone these days. From routers, to phones, desktops, IoT and servers . 

So believe it or not you are already using it on a daily basis.  We believe that propriety solutions are a thing of the past and a major risk for businesses out there. 

We actively participate in various open source projects and encourage our clients to choose this path as well.





Linux as an open source operating system

Linux is the best-known and most-used open source operating system. As an operating system, Linux is software that sits underneath all of the other software on a computer, receiving requests from those programs and relaying these requests to the computer’s hardware.

Why we choose open source?

No Licenses

 In Open Source you don't pay for the software but only at your choice for the support and maintenance.

Company Independence

 If the company that created the software fails, the code can still exist and evolve via its user community.

It's Easy to Manage

You can install open source software in as many locations as you want, with no need to count, track or monitor it for license compliance.

Open your Business to new possibilities

Today the most forward-thinking organizations—whatever their missions—are embracing openness as a necessary orientation toward success.
And GMX is leading the way !

In open organizations, transparency reigns. As much as possible (and advisable) under applicable laws, open organizations work to make their data and other materials easily accessible to both internal and external participants.


Open organizations are inclusive. They not only welcome diverse points of view but also implement specific mechanisms for inviting multiple perspectives into dialog wherever and whenever possible.


Open organizations are flexible and resilient organizations. Organizational policies and technical apparatuses ensure that both positive and negative feedback loops have a genuine and material effect on organizational operation.



Right then.
So what is Closed Source?


Closed source software can be defined as proprietary software distributed under a licensing agreement to authorized users with private modification, copying, and republishing restrictions.

Or in other terms, the source code is not shared with the public for anyone to look at or change. Closed source is the opposite of open source.

Generally, the key differentiators between open and closed come down to a few factors:

Let's cover the basics. 

The premise of open source software sounded like a dream when the Free Software movement kicked off. Since then, however, the concept has paved the way for much-loved tech icons such as the GNU/Linux operating system, the Apache HTTP Server and the Mozilla Firefox browser.

Today, CIOs and other IT decision-makers are increasingly recognizing the value of open source software.
 In the era of continuous improvement, open source represents the essence of communal collaboration as it allows IT experts to examine a product’s source code, improve or alter it, and distribute it as they desire.
Indeed, enthusiasm for open source software is driving a "golden era" in application.
