At IKH we help our clients choose the solution that works best for their organization and we keep at arm’s length the ideologically-driven debate of open-source vs. proprietary solutions. Plenty of decision makers are unfamiliar with the nuances of software selection and the hidden costs of closed or open technologies. Our decade-long experience with information systems taught us to stop thinking about proprietary and community-maintained software as being radically different. Making the source code available to anyone is not synonymous to free and when the full costs of adoption and quality are put into the equation, the differences between proprietary and open-source become trivial.  

IKH resides in the best of both worlds. Open source and IBM’s core technologies are two parallel branches of the same tree. We have embraced the open source community, the modifiable source code, and the better security provided, while at the same time we have adopted Big Blue’s applications, database, and content management tools.

We know software. You know your objectives. Together we can architect and fit the right solution to your infrastructure.
