Open Source Technologies

Open source means that the product's source code will be made available to its users, can be downloaded and modified as long as license requirements are observed. Since open source solutions are different than commercial software, NextGen IT Solutions uses new methods to build applications based on Open Source Software(OSS). With the endless possibility of learning and development, open source software is here to stay and we have identified its impact, use and advantages for our clients.

Following are some of the OSS we use:
