Cofundos looks like one possible solution to an often murky area in the open source software space: how to continue fueling development. Suppose you find some open source software useful but it doesn't have commercial backing devoting regular developers (for example, Red Hat or Compiere ) to its well-being, and suppose you don't want to employ developers

Wrapping Up FOSS Predictions for 2010 with a Look Back


I love end of year predictions. Whether they're right or wrong is one thing, but it's valuable to imagine various scenarios of what might happen. Taking the time to consider and connect what has happened with what might happen, opens new insights. Having said that, I'm not going to make a 2010 prediction about Free and Open Source Software (FOSS). I do, however, want to share some stats about

AGPL v3 Touches Web Services


The Free Software Foundation (FSF) issued a press release on its newly published Affero General Public License (AGPL) version 3. This license affects the modification and distribution of software oriented toward Web-based services. The popular adoption of Web-based applications as an alternate to in-house software implementations has meant that free and open source software developed for web

As a Web-based service, the companies providing their own CRM service with the application aren't required to release their modifications back to the community, so the company that originated the application wouldn't benefit from the FOSS community in the same way that the non-Web-based app developer would. That's a potentially big minus in incentives for developing web-based apps, FOSS-style. If I understand correctly, the AGPL changes that Read More

TEC Research Analyst Round Table: Software-as-a-Service (SaaS)


Software-as-a-service (SaaS): friend or foe? SaaS—also known as on-demand or hosted applications—is becoming more and more popular in a number of enterprise application areas and quickly changing the minds of many a skeptic. SaaS is changing the way organizations pay for, implement, and run their software applications. Unlike traditional applications, which are paid for up front and installed on

A FOSS application delivered as a Web service without reciprocating its code may grow out-of-step with the community ecosystem—losing some of the rising tide benefits. In the SaaS application market, you're unlikely to the find wide-ranging customization possible through FOSS. What happens if your SaaS vendor goes out of business? One method to ensure continuity is to sign-up with a vendor that also provides an on-premise FOSS version. If the vendor goes under, set up a system to Read More

Demand at the Fount of Open Source: A Primer Based in Demand Trends

In a truly ugly display of how contentious the application server market has become, they argued over whose product was better, faster, cheaper.

Quote-to-Order: An Overlooked Software Application


Last year, I met an analyst from another firm, and asked him what he thought about quote-to-order (Q2O) solutions, given the relevance between Q2O and the conference that I was attending. Not quite surprisingly, the answer I got was, “this kind of application doesn’t have a future.” The conversation didn’t go any further due to limited time but I could imagine that his reasoning might have sounded

Application Erosion: Eating Away at Your Hard Earned Value

Eventually, they came up with the term application erosion to describe their common problem. These CIOs each had the same ERP system installed from four to nine years. Each observed that through time, the system value had become less and less. The system had not changed; but the users were using less and less of the system for no apparent reason. In Read More

Enterprise Application Integration - the Latest Trend in Getting Value from Data


Enterprise Application Integration (EAI) is one of the hot-button issues in IT for the Year 2000. Information Week Research's survey of 300 technology managers showed nearly 75% of respondents said EAI is a planned project for their IT departments in the coming year. According to a survey conducted by Bank Boston, the market for EAI is expected to be $50 Billion USD by 2001. However, successful EAI requires a careful combination of a middleware framework, distributed object technologies, and custom consulting.

That decline can be measured in terms of its latency, the time between the physical action (shipping a product) and the time that the database reflects that action. In a real-time system, the latency is zero. In good implementations, the latency is minimal, measured in minutes or maybe hours. As erosion sets i Read More
