SaniHUB is an initiative based on the Open-Source concept, and its main goal is to disseminate knowledge and make available modern tools that help the sanitation sector.
There are several misconceptions about the meaning of the term Open-Source, such as:
- The simplification of the term to something free (no costs);
- The myth that large companies avoid open-source technologies.
The truth is that we were surrounded by successful Open-Source projects widely used by large companies/organizations, for example:
i) QGIS, ii) AWS - Amazon Web Service, iii) Drupal (web technology in which the SaniHUB portal was developed), iv) the Linux Foundation, among others.
Behind them are developers, companies, and specialists dedicated to their development and maintenance, which implies costs.
