Your APIs are to your business what a panel and controls are to a car. Most people have no clue about how a car works under the hood, but knows that if you push the accelerator, the car goes faster, and if you apply your brakes, the car will eventually stop. Similarly, things like climate control, blind spot detection, and adaptive cruise control provide a safer and more enjoyable driving experience without you having to worry about how those systems do what they do. Well, that is exactly how good APIs should work! This white paper explains why you need to and how you can adopt an effective API strategy. It demonstrates the most pragmatic way to do this with general insights and real experiences from some of our consultants on the field.

Open source communities grow strong when there are many and diverse participants. For many popular projects, there are a few major contributors – usually the authors of the original code – but a long tail of community members that help keep a project current, relevant, and of the highest quality. This white paper focuses on the benefits of contributing resources to an open source project, for which there are no direct returns.
Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) figures are often published by vendors but can be hard to relate to your own organization or a specific project. Often they involve an over-idealized model of the business. Small deviations between reality and the TCO model assumptions can easily overwhelm the supposed logic of the calculation. In addition too narrow a focus solely on costs (TCO) versus the subtle factors that affect the ROI. This white paper will discuss TCO by presenting some factors inherent to open source software that are hard to quantify in a TCO context but have a significant impact on the long-term outcome.
Software is a strange product. It exists entirely in the information space, so the marginal cost of a copy is near zero. Software licenses allowed creators retain full ownership and use copyright law to limit anyone else from making copies. This white paper will explore how open source eliminates many of the unpleasant side effects of traditional licensing by promising that the creator will NOT impose such limits.
