This will be about BMC Software and its relation to Control-M.
Control-M Open Source Alternative
A lot of people are looking for a Control-M alternative, open source, that does everything that they need.
Control-M Open Source - Status
Some people out there might actually be wondering if Control-M is open source. They might also be wondering if there is any chance that it would be released as open source software. The answer, of coures is no. The idea isn't as crazy as it might sound. It is a valid question for someone who isn't familiar with the product. Many other vendors do have open source software the does still bring in a profit ( often a huge profit ). More still release previously closed source software as open source. I'm not saying that it will never happen but it doesn't seam likely, at least in the short to medium term.
