BENEFITS

03.1 USERS

Software users make substantial investments in software, hardware, staff training, and recruitment. As a result they become heavily dependent on the manufacturer. As a rule, however, they still have no access to the source code. Software users, therefore, face an uncertain future if maintenance and servicing duties fail to be performed, if a business shuts down, if it is taken over, or if the software supplier becomes bankrupt. Access to the source code and programming documents is the only key to the further productive use of the software.

03.3 SYSTEM INTEGRATORS

A system integrator benefits doubly from SWEAG’s services. As general contractor he has to provide guarantees for his software subcontractors’ products. Without access to the source codes of programs he negligently runs risks. At the same time, his clients also have similar requirements as the software manufacturer, but in their case because of the nature of the business and especially on account of the greater value of their interests.
