Tarus Balog, Adventures in Open Source

OpenNMS won SearchNetworking.com’s Product Innovation Award in 2007.

OpenNMS [was] the gold medal winner in our network and IT management platforms category. The open source enterprise-grade network management system was designed as a replacement for more expensive commercial products such as IBM Tivoli and HP OpenView. It periodically checks that services are available, isolates problems, collects performance information, and helps resolve outages. And it’s free.

In our Product Leadership survey, readers praised OpenNMS for being easy to customize, easy to integrate and — of course — free. These attributes are all characteristic of any open source product. Because of its open source nature, OpenNMS has a community of developers contributing to its code. The code is open for anyone to view or adapt to suit individual needs.
