Open Source Software
Traditionally there have been three types of enterprise software
Enter Commercial Open Source
Commercial Open Source is a simple concept – a brick-and-mortar company offers support and training for an open source software product. Often the company will charge for their services on a subscription model or offer a both a commercially support version and a community support version of their products. The commercial version typically adds advanced features.
This model provides companies an option to realize the advantages of open source without having to rely on a loose-knit community of developers for support.
Better Products Through Collaboration
The transition to commercial open source has resulted in a new breed of enterprise software products. Instead of offering features defined and created by a single software vendor, commercial open source applications get features from thousands of companies and developers that represent actual users of the products. The communities that began this revolution are very active in driving commercial open source and that collaboration is leading to superior products.
