    available information on the project its repository and mailing lists The first result is a set of significant variables that collectively give a set of quality indicators of the code and the community of developers around the project these indicators will be included in the public database of projects and will give a simple semaphore like indication of what aspects may be critical and what are the project strengths On the other hand we have worked on the integration of the functional aspects in the evaluation process that is how to weight in features vs the risk that the project may introduce For this reason we have added to our guide a new simplified evaluation schema that includes both aspects in a single graph Creating a graph for a product selection involves three easy steps starting from the list of features extract those considered to be indispensable from the optional ones all projects lacking in indispensable features are excluded from the list for every optional feature a 1 score is added to the project feature score obtaining a separate score for each project using the automated tools from FLOSSMETRICS a readiness score is computed using the following rule for every green in the liveness and quality parameters a 1 score is added 1 for every red This gives for each project a position in a two dimensional graph like this one The evaluator can then prioritize the selection according to the kind of adoption that is planned those that are mission critical and that requires a high project stability and a good probability that the project itself is successful and alive will prefer the project positioned on the right hand of the graph while those that are more experimental will favour the project placed in the top This approach integrates

    FLOSS is produced For this reason we have worked within the FLOSSMETRICS project on a new approach that is entirely automated and based on automated extraction of the quality parameters from the available information on the project its repository and mailing lists The first result is a set of significant variables that collectively give a set of quality indicators of the code and the community of developers around the project these indicators will be included in the public database of projects and will give a simple semaphore like indication of what aspects may be critical and what are the project strengths On the other hand we have worked on the integration of the functional aspects in the evaluation process that is how to weight in features vs the risk that the project may introduce For this reason we have added to our guide a new simplified evaluation schema that includes both aspects in a single graph Creating a graph for a product selection involves three easy steps starting from the list of features extract those considered to be indispensable from the optional ones all projects lacking in indispensable features are excluded from the list for every optional feature a 1 score is added to the project feature score obtaining a separate score for each project using the automated tools from FLOSSMETRICS a readiness score is computed using the following rule for every green in the liveness and quality parameters a 1 score is added 1 for every red This gives for each project a position in a two dimensional graph like this one The evaluator can then prioritize the selection according to the kind of adoption that is planned those that are mission critical and that requires a high project stability and a good probability that the project itself is

    now two years later I found references to the previous editions of the guide in websites across the world and was delighted in discovering that some OSS companies are using it as marketing material to help prospective customers So after a few more months of work I am really happy to present the fourth and final edition of the guide PDF link that will I hope improve in our previous efforts For those that already viewed the previous editions chapter 6 was entirely rewritten along with a new chapter 7 and a newly introduced evaluation method The catalogue has been expanded and corrected in several places also thanks to the individual companies and groups responsible for the packages themselves and the overall appearance of the PDF version should be much improved compared to the automatically generated version I will continue to work on it even after the end of the project and as before I welcome any contribution and suggestion FLOSS open source OSS adoption OSS business models OSS migration 8 Comments You are currently browsing the archives for Thursday July 2nd 2009 blog divertissements EveryDesk OSS adoption OSS business models OSS data Uncategorized July 2009 M T W T

    functional point of view the old open core model separated functions at approximately 70 the OS edition had from 60 to 70 of the functions of the proprietary product while now this split is around 90 or even higher but is complemented with assurance services like support documentation knowledge bases the certification of code and so on Just to show some examples DimDim We have synchronized this release to match the latest hosted version and released the complete source code tree Bear in mind that features which require the Dimdim meeting portal scheduling recording to note are not available in open source There is also no limit to the number of attendees and meetings that can be supported using the Open Source Community Edition If you compare the editions it is possible to see that the difference lies apart from the scheduling and recording in support and the availability of professional services like custom integration with external authentication sources Alfresco The difference in source code lies in the clustering and high availability support and the JMX management extensions all of which may be replicated with some effort by using pure OSS tools Those differences are clearly relevant for the largest and most complex installations from the point of view of services the editions are differentiated through availability of support certification both of binary releases and of external stacks like database and app server bug fixing documentation availability of upgrades and training options Cynapse an extremely interesting group collaboration system The code difference lies in LDAP integration and clustering the service difference lies in support availability of certified binaries knowledgebase access and official documentation OpenClinica a platform for the creation of Electronic Data Capture systems used in pharmaceutical trials and in data acquisition in health care from the web site OpenClinica

    Free Revealing Balancing Code Sharing and Protection in Commercial Open Source Development that is available also at the Cospa knowledge base a digital collection of more than 2000 papers on open source that we created and populated in the context of the COSPA project In the paper there is a nice summary analysis of reasons for contributing back and one of the results is What does it means That licensing issues are the main reason for publishing back but separated by very few percentage points other reasons appear the signaling advantage being good players the R D sharing and many others In this sense my view is that the GPL creates an initial context by forcing the publication of source code that creates a secondary effect reuse and quality improvement that appears after some time In fact our research shows that companies need quite some time to grasp the advantages of reuse and participation the GPL enforces participation for enough time that companies discovers the added benefits and start moving their motivations to economic reasons as compared to legal enforcing or legal risks FLOSS open source OSS adoption OSS business models 4 Comments You are currently browsing the archives for
