The primary mission of government agencies is to efficiently and effectively serve their citizens—and they rely on data systems to do so. These agencies rely on real-time data to provide food and income assistance, medical care, and safe housing. However, these data systems are often outdated, confined, and inaccessible. Some state and local governments are turning to commercially supported open source middleware solutions, like Red Hat® JBoss® Middleware, to alleviate these barriers. Learn about the benefits of open source solutions and how they differ from proprietary offerings.
