I have been thinking for quite awhile on starting a series on how high tech can impact the bottom line for many Contractors. For years now, Nationals have been harnessing the power of technology to give them a competitive advantage over both each other and Contractors as a whole. Until recently, it was necessary to master languages and formats such as PHP, jQuerry and SQL. Not anymore! What used to require an IT Department and millions of dollars is simply a mouse click away and free of charge! Over the next few weeks we are going to begin a series on Open Source Technology.
