Many new technology companies are utilizing open source as a major part of their business strategy - and existing tech companies are more and more open sourcing their existing technology. This seems counter-intuitive for for-profit tech companies to give away their technology - and yet the "open source strategy" is an emerging business model for the tech industry. This panel will discuss why open source is not just a business strategy, it provides secondary business models and revenue streams for technology companies.
