Why would a company want to share its intellectual property in the way that an open development model requires? When a succesful software company, such as Alfresco, releases the program code for it's products as open source there must be a solid business reason for doing so. What is that reason?
For Alfresco the decision has paid off. in 2010 CIO magazine named Alfresco as one of "Twenty Companies to Watch" while the companmnies customer list is impressive. In this session Nick Burch will look at the benefits sharing can bring. It will look at how the open development model has enabled Alfresco to reduce costs and increase innovation. This in turn as enabled the company to enter a market that was previously dominated by multi-billion £ organisations. Perhaps the most important lesson to be learned is that the sharing model is a critical part of this success of Alfresco's products, in this talk we will look at how other companies might be able to produce similar results.
