Here are the results of our recent, internal, UN-scientific survey of open source packages that we’ve used in the recent past.

Boyle Software is not alone in recognizing and promoting the fact that only companies with a clever digital strategy will survive. Every company, in every industry, in every country, needs a digital strategy – yesterday!
