By separating the BPM initiatives that preferred FOSS BPM solution from the rest, I was able to find that the two groups (named as the FOSS BPM group and the non-FOSS BPM group) showed Read More

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.

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