Open Source is not enough

Provenance, open governance, vendor neutrality and the role of ecosystems


The investment in Open Source is accelerating as well as the examples of part of those investments not achieving the expectations they created. Projects that attracts attention and then turn their communities down, successful projects around organizations that create business models that fagocitate their communities and ecosystems, organizations open sourcing software but failing to attract any attention,… What used to be black and white is not anymore.

The talk will describe how provenance, open governance and vendor neutrality can become excellent complements to Open Source in order to address some of the challenges associated to the increasing complexity of the environment in which Open Source communities and ecosystems operate today.

In addition, Agustín will put focus on the relevance of defining a sustainable relations between developers (communities) and organizations (ecosystems) and how Eclipse Foundation address this topic in alignment with those three concepts.
