  28. 28. 4. Korean Cases §  Implications from Korean Cases Implications 1 Closed R&D System - Try to develop almost all the technologies by Need to leverage outside technology and reso itself. urces to respond to fast changing market situ ations. 2 University & Research Inst. Centric - Heavily rely on traditional linear downstream Need to engage more enterprises’ request an R&D model. d enterprise itself in development system. 3 Ambiguous R&D Goal Need to address R&D and D&B separately.

  30. 30. 5. Strategies §  Inside-Out Strategy Inside-Out Strategy 1 Change previous R&D outcomes to open source § Encourage to change previous R&D outcomes to ‘Dual License’ based open source § Let the technology flow to the people in need § ‘Technology in the Shelf’ doesn’t create any value 2 Need to Start Open Source Based R&D § Approach open source as a disruptive innovation § Participate in international open source GIS activities and lead the communities § This will increase the quality and interactions among actors!OSGeo Korean Chapter 31 Shin, Sanghee(
  31. 31. 5. Strategies §  Outside-In Strategy Outside-In Strategy Korean Situations Open Source GIS Strategies • Limited human resources • Internalize the outside resources • Limited R&D funds • Active adoption of Open Source GIS • Small & medium size GIS companies • Reduce GIS SW cost using Open Source GIS • Unable to target all the fields • Targeting professional fields • High dependency on proprietary GIS • Reduce the dependency on proprietary GISOSGeo Korean Chapter 32 Shin, Sanghee(
  32. 32. 5. Strategies §  Select & Focus Strategy Select & Focus Strategy 1 3 Targeting Cutting-Edge Technology Clear Discrimination between R&D, D&B - From Catch-up to Leap-frogging - Need to increase the commercialization capa bilities 2 4 Niche Market Strategy More Business Centric Policy Needed - Not only technology create values - Growth of business will create the virtuous cir cle of NGIS R&D Consider not only R&D itself but D&B as well!!OSGeo Korean Chapter 33 Shin, Sanghee(

  34. 34. 6. Conclusions Open Innovation • Need to consider fast changing market & customers needs Strategy • Not future prediction, but increasing adaptabilities Inside-Out • Rejuvenate sleeping technology by changing it to open source Strategy • Let the technology flow to the people in need Outside-In • Need to actively embrace the open source GIS technology Strategy • Internalize the outside high-performance resources • Changing strategy from catch-up to leap-frogging Select & Focus • Need to target cutting-edge technology that could leverage hidden assets Strategy • Need to discriminate R&D and D&B • Every country has its own unique invisible assetsOSGeo Korean Chapter 35 Shin, Sanghee(
