Cultural Challenges for OpenSource in LATAM


‘Ceph’, and basically any OpenSource product, is still a “maybe or nah” in LATAM. It’s easier to pay millions for commercial products, where the vendor takes full responsibility from the delivery to the support. It’s also easier to blame the success or failure on the vendor and the quality of the product. LATAM still has a cultural gap regarding OpenSource. A lack of ownership, taking the risk of developing and retaining the required talent in-house to make things work. A challenge that can be tackled with a more specific business analysis of companies in LATAM, including an organizational cultural transition, to demonstrate the benefits of Opensource in the mid-term, putting them more in control and accelerating their digital transformation.
