Open source services offerings emphasize on open source technologies through the whole technology spectrum including servers to data integration software and critical business solutions such as Big Data, and customer relationship management. Though the basic offerings are like traditional IT service offerings, open source services are custom-made around the open source software. Open source software retains its high quality by allowing a large number of coders from different backgrounds with distinctive perspectives to make regular updates and improve the value and flexibility of the code. Open source services are used for business process management, data integration, cloud management, web content management, and project management. Open source in cloud computing offers high compatibility with a range of products such as Cloudify and Cloud Foundry. Besides, it can also be used in software modeling tools and software development tools.

The open source services market is gaining traction across the globe due to the growing availability of open source platforms, increasing tech-savvy population, and flexibility to modify the code. These services enable users to interact and modify the source code. As more users can develop a code better and make it more purposeful, its relevance consequently increases. Furthermore, open source management projects enhance enterprise capabilities. Software such as Blender (3D modeling software), LibreCAD (2D CAD software), and SimPy, automatically offer benefits due to copyright protection, providing the developer control over permission to make copies of the derivatives. Open source services provide companies with the benefit of cost-effectiveness and enhanced security and quality. Open source software does not include upgrading costs and multi-user fees and administration fees. Adoption of open source services is increasing, as it supports financial savings of businesses by reducing operating costs and budgets, as well as enables allocation of more finances to beneficial enterprise services associated with OSS, including user training, support, and custom development. All these factors are anticipated to drive the open source services market during the forecast period.
