Linux Courses Increase Job Options for Techs

| For software programmers and developers worried about layoffs and job
| security in these tough economic times, the answer may be as clear as the
| screen on your cell phone. That's because manufacturers of small consumer

Where the Tech Jobs Are, Part 1

| "In a recession, headcount looks like a cost center, but open source can turn
| employees into profit centers -- or, at worst, into less costly cost
| centers," he said.
| "For example, let's say an enterprise needs [an enterprise content
| management] system, perhaps for outsourcing documentation or to build a new
| catalog system -- or perhaps for a workflow system around approval of
| executive documents. Traditional IT would invite vendors to do a dog-and-pony
| show," Asay explained, "ultimately culminating in a purchase of software
| licenses and services to make the licenses useful to the enterprise." The IT
| staffer is then mostly responsible for coordinating others' efforts, and the
| associated expenses.
| An open source savvy IT person, by contrast, would download an open source
| ECM solution and tweak it to save the company license and services
| fees -- "and the risk that the software wouldn't work as advertised," said
| Asay.
