5. Preparing for an open source implementation

True or False? When embarking on an open source project, there is no need to consider all the aspects of a traditional software project, including training, documentation, enhancements, bug fixes, and the entire infrastructure required to develop/test/run the system.

a) True
b) False

ANSWER: B

According to industry expert Paul Sweeney, "You need to understand why open source is important to your requirements -- is it price, access to source code, unique features and functions, ability to customize? You need to consider training, documentation, enhancements, bug fixes, and the entire infrastructure required to develop/test/run the system -- all the usual stuff that goes along with most software projects."
