to help we’d really need more information. it’s not a good idea to
start building a budget, until you have:
* an action plan that ties to projects that you’re going to be
involved in, and
* a set of priorities for your organisation that *you* - the
organisation - feels are important
* an indication of what you have, and what working state it’s in.
* an indication of what resources you have and where their skills areas
(of course, you can extend this list .. )
in general, i think most people here prefer open-source; but it would
be disingenuous to you to, to make suggestions along these lines if the
bulk of your organisation isn’t geared that way.
