This is a very traditional question. What is the best [insert license model here for [insert class of application here.] In this case it is about the best "Open Source" application for a banking application.

Picking a license model first before evaluating whether a product is going to meet more critical requirements places an organization on the path to financial ruin. Pick a tool which is a poor fit for your technology, your reporting, your analytical/monitoring needs or even the capabilities of your team and all you will wind up doing is shifting costs to labor and modification of the tool. In the end these efforts for a "Free" tool wind up costing more than the cost of a better fit commercial tool.

Time - Quality - Money. Pick any one as critical and the other two have to move to conform. If money (for license) goes to zero, then plan on taking hits in time and quality, especially where a tool has not been evaluated for technical and team fit before adoption.
