    @Gopiprasad Alagesan, Welcome to Microsoft Q&A,

    can I  use open-source software or have to purchase any specific license for this? please advise.

    It depends on the specific open-source software you want to use. Some open-source licenses have specific requirements, such as providing attribution to the original author or releasing any modifications under the same license.

    If you plan to use open-source software for commercial purposes, you should review the specific license terms carefully to ensure that your intended use is allowed and that you comply with any requirements.

    In some cases, open-source software may have additional support or enterprise versions available for purchase, which can provide additional features or support services. However, in most cases, open-source software can be used for free without purchasing a specific license.

    Hope my explanation could help you.

    Best Regards,

    Jack
