Open Source for Enterprise Innovation

The open source model is being widely adopted across all industry sectors to enable customer-centric innovation and accelerated growth. While originally the business case centered on lower total cost of ownership, many firms have embraced open source software as an integral part of their strategy to rapidly building differentiated products and implementing digital transformation. Participation in open source projects and communities, whether simply as a consumer or as an active contributor or even leader, has emerged as the basis for competitive advantage.
