TYSONS CORNER, VA, October 1, 2019 — Shaun Bierweiler, vice president and general manager of Cloudera’s (NYSE: CLDR) public sector division, has said federal, state and local governments can benefit from utilizing open source software to support their missions, ExecutiveBiz reported Sept. 6.
He wrote in a LinkedIn article published Sept. 5 that open source software allows government agencies to use the insights of the developer community to configure programs according to their specific needs. In addition, the nature of the software enables it to support backward-compatible application programming interfaces as well as newer programs and apps.
"The added flexibility and access to the constantly evolving, advanced technology that open source provides is exactly what government customers need to stay ahead of the curve and fully in control of their data," Bierweiler added.
