White Paper
Understanding Open Source Business Models for the C-Suite
presenter
Presenter
Brett Orr
General Manager Bigmate

Overview

At Instaclustr, we are 100% focused on open-source software and have spent a lot of time observing how open source projects work and thinking about the implications. A major risk that we evaluate in adopting and recommending open source software is what happens if a dominant entity associated with that software either goes out of business or takes it in a direction that is not good for the community. If your future use of the software is tied to the whim of a single commercial entity (even if you’re not paying that entity today), then many of the benefits of open-source software are greatly reduced (and may evaporate altogether in the future for that software).

This white paper would help you understand things you need to consider before considering a software project.
