On one hand, software is becoming the key element for more and more businesses. On the other hand, the price for software has never been lower. In addition, today it is increasingly provisioned through the World Wide Web and cloud computing in the form of services rather than products. The successful establishment of base technologies, platforms and associated business ecosystems therefore plays an increasingly important role in the context of software.

Today decisions regarding software both in usage as well as in development are essential for economic success. Open source software and dealing with it has thereby established as an effective tool for the implementation of strategic business goals.
