Research Seminar at Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand Wednesday 28th November 2012

Title: Sustainable Open Source

Speaker: Dr. Dirk Riehle (University of Erlangen-Nürnberg)

Abstract: MySQL was sold for one billion US-dollar. Red Hat is worth a multiple of that. The Eclipse Foundation has pushed many software tool vendors out of business. How come that open source, a phenomenon dubbed "temporary" not only has become sustainable but the business strategy of choice?

In this talk, I discuss the four main business models, two for-profit and two not-for-profit, that have made open source sustainable. These models are changing the business of software and are the future of our industry.
