Poll on Open Source ECM

The outcome of my little poll here on the impact Open Source options will have on the ECM market is as follows:

Pretty overwhelming result then really! And if it means anything (and I would not place too much value on it) then I guess it is telling us that buyers are getting smart and the Open Source is simply another option to consider.

In truth the polling numbers weren't that high (under a 100) but its interesting nonetheless. That great book, 'Lies, Damned Lies & Statistics' would love such specialist polls and their outcomes. Yet even though this is far from scientific its probably as good as some polls we see come from more mainstream sources on the topic.

Personally I had thought that lowered software license costs would have polled much higher - but hey that shows how much I know :-)
