Open Source Consulting

Develop an Open Source IT Strategy

Businesses are increasingly interested in investigating and implementing Open Source technologies to help cut licensing costs, increase security, and stay ahead of their competition. Whether your organization is looking for web development using an Open Source platform, maintaining a Linux server, or simply exploring a shift towards the Open Source world, Freelock can help you navigate through the hundreds of options to ensure your systems are working for you.

John Locke, our founder and senior consultant, has provided open source consulting to Microsoft, Red Hat, and several smaller startups. He has analyzed and reviewed claims in white papers, written competitive briefs, advised clients on how best to turn a proprietary software program into a thriving open source project, and more.

In addition to writing the book "Open Source Solutions for Small Business Problems," John regularly speaks at technical conferences, attends business events, and engages in discussions with other open source leaders. He has saved startups and existing organizations tens of thousands of dollars by identifying the right amount of hardware necessary to build out a new web site. He has helped businesses nail down a strategy for attracting users to a community, and avoid intellectual property pitfalls.

  1. If you are a user of business software and are interested in finding out more about open source options for your business or office, you may be a little bit frustrated about the lack of introductory-level information on this topic... The best single source of such information that I have found so far is John Locke's "Open Source Solutions for Small Business Problems." It provides an excellent introduction to the concepts, advantages, and disadvantages behind open-source.
