Build a business case: developing custom apps

Regcast Whether organisations benefit more from using open source-based solutions or those supplied from traditional proprietary software vendors is often debated at a theoretical level. In reality organisations use solutions that give them some form of business benefit or that address particular pain points, deploying a mix of proprietary and open source. The balance varies organisation by organisation but in the real world there are few closed shops.

This webcast aims to give attendees the advice and answers to weigh up the benefits, costs and risks of proprietary, open source and hybrid environments. Join The Register's expert panel for this live, fully interactive webcast from 2pm (BST)/ 9am (EST) July 29
