Open source simply means that the solution’s source code is made freely available to developers and potential customers. Unlike a closed source solution, open source gives power to the people. Anybody can freely use the source code to build out and customize a solution to meet any specific requirements he might need. And the solution isn’t made for only developers. A top open source ERP with an established community built around it typically allows customers to use community modules without technical knowledge of their own.
