Organizational Readiness Assessment for Open Source Software Adoption

Lucía Méndez-Tapia, Lucía Méndez-Tapia, Juan Carvallo

Abstract

Open Source Software (OSS) is probably, the most iconic implementation of Open Innovation business paradigm, due its capacity to concentrate both technical benefits and business advantages. Over time, organizations face the OSS adoption challenge strengthening mainly its internal and technical elements. However, the rapid changes on business dynamics, and the comprehensiveness and fast development of open paradigms, show us that a new set of conditions must be satisfied to reach a successfully OSS adoption. These conditions, considered as a critical success factors, involve a wide range of resources, capacities and skills, both in internal and external scopes. Hence, although adopter organizations should be better prepared to face the challenges related to collaborative innovation, they do not have a systematic approach to value its readiness level to face the adoption challenges. In this context, the present research work proposes a model to assess the organizational readiness, considering the adopter as part of a live business ecosystem, where the relationships originated on co-development with developers’ communities, have mutual business impact at strategic, tactic, and operative level.
