Collaboration instead of competition

Open source software is an elementary component of most software applications in companies. Companies often use open source software for cost reasons or for reasons of security and stability of the offering. For companies that develop and offer software themselves, the provision - i.e. not just the use of open source software - can in turn represent an exciting business model. By making source code available, exciting ecosystem strategies can be realized, cooperation and collaboration with partners and customers can be simplified, and new payment models and incentives for customers can be created. Open source approaches are an exciting business model strategy for start-ups in particular. Small and medium-sized enterprises, as well as corporations, also benefit from open source as a collaboration method and ecosystem strategy. We work out exactly how in the course of developing a holistic open source strategy for your company.
