Simon Phipps writes that migrating an organization to open source productivity software can dramatically improve a company's bottom line - but that's not the only reason to make the switch. "The true benefits of the change arise not from avoiding license fees but from the flexibility your company gains," he writes. "That flexibility comes from cross platform interoperability and the longevity given to the tools and file formats you are free to use. Even simple changes can make a big difference."
