More and more companies are adopting the “open source” strategy (not philosophy) and how much that helps them in improving the top-line or bottom-line is yet to be seen. However, one thing that is likely to improve is the Google PageRank. This is because, every now and then some one or the other writes an article about open source in some context or the other (like open source enterprise applications, open source business intelligence applications, open source middleware etc) and your open source may likely to feature in one of those articles. That will sure improve your Google PageRank! So, if not anything, the least Open Source strategy will do for your company is to improve the Google PageRank and hence your website’s likelihood to feature as high as possible on the search results for certain keywords. Not bad huh!
