Allevo receives award for its solution for corporations
What a great start of the year for Allevo who continues the tradition of being among the winners at the e-Finance Awards Gala, held this year on January 26 in Bucharest. At the 13th edition of this important competition in Romania dedicated to IT&C and financial and banking industry we have received the e-payments award prize for initiating  TOSS (Treasure Open Source Software) application in 2015, our financial transactions centralized processing solution for corporations.
Is there anything in it for open source software application adopters?
I have been asked to write an article for the first Allevo newsletter of 2016. Then I got a wealth of friendly advice on how to do it Ė comply KISS (Keep It Simple Sorin Ė to just paraphrase their saying), be positive, donít address uncomfortable themes, and lot more. Here I go and hope to be sufficiently alive to publish the extension of this post Ė discussing the risks related to OSS.
