By now, even most large organizations have realized the benefits that accrue with using open source software — the collective hive mind that fixes bugs and develops new features at a faster pace than any commercial software company could match. Yet, companies in highly regulated industries, such as the banking, face considerable regulatory hurdles in using open source software.
