Open source refers to a program or software in which the source code is available to the general public from its original design free of charge. Ixis worked exclusively in Drupal for a number of years, becoming the UK’s leading dedicated agency. When we had honed our skills in Drupal to perfection and built one of the most diverse portfolios in the UK, ranging from enterprises to local government and third sector organisations, we expanded our expertise to include other open source platforms. This means that we can offer our services to an even wider range of businesses.
By choosing an open source product such as Drupal, Wordpress or Magento, it means your budget will be spent on functionality and features rather than recurring licensing costs. With communities full of passionate developers, designers, trainers, strategists, coordinators, editors, and sponsors working together there are thousands of eyes on the code, keeping it secure and up to date.
Open source technology and the financial industry are simply a match made in heaven. Providing reduced licensing costs or ample opportunity to innovate, open source provides the perfect platform for you and your organisation.
