An Open Source Success Story on Wall Street

"I've been doing large infrastructure for large companies for fifteen years: it is a crock that it needs to be proprietary", Moore said. He is the Executive Director of Enterprise Application Infrastructure for Morgan Stanley and Company where they need, as he put it, "real working systems [...] software so damn good it just keeps on working." For businesses that depend on software for daily operations he sees funding open source as a way to bypass all of the middle men and give all the money directly to the developer. He also had something to say about giving back to the community. "If we develop a piece of software and it does not give us a commercial advantage, releasing it reduces support risk and cost."
