Understanding and Engaging with the Open Source Community
Anonymous Reader writes "This 10-page whitepaper by the Olliance Group, an independent, Open Source strategy-consulting firm, examines the opportunities offered by the Open Source community-based software development model and ecosystem to industry, government, and academia. The paper explains the advantages of leveraging IT investments and increasing organizational effectiveness and efficiency by using and continually improving high quality Open Source software, and describes the rationale for, and benefits of, engaging with the Open Source community. Finally a high level process is suggested for deciding to deploy Open Source and how to engage with the community."
