Business of open source: A case study of integrating existing patterns through narratives
This paper integrates previously published patterns (many of them documented by the author) for open source businesses through narratives. An open source business employs open source as a strategy to strengthen its business model. The paper makes three contributions: it links patterns by creating narratives of how they have been applied by different companies; it documents pattern sequences for each example; and it proposes a way to group the patterns that reflects how strategic open source is to a business.
