  6. 6. Missing Links of the Open Source EcoSphere <ul><li>Open source in the public sector should not be a special case of open source. </li></ul><ul><li>Open source community management in the public sector is lacking a strategy. </li></ul><ul><li>Open source marketing is too technical. </li></ul><ul><li>Open source lobbyism is too unorganized. </li></ul>
  7. 7. Missing Links of the Public Sector Ecosphere <ul><li>Public tenders fail to take into account the strengths of open source and agile approaches. </li></ul><ul><li>Studies fail to take into account „crowd benefits“. </li></ul><ul><li>The success factors of industrial open source do not count as much in the public sector: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>being the first or best solution for a technical problem </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>being freely available </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Thinking often centers around career protection. </li></ul>
  8. 8. Lessons Learned About the Public Sector A Commercially Viable Open Source Approach With Tangible Benefits for the Public Sector Exists Speed of Education vs. Speed of Business Lack of Public Support Distribution of Expertise Dire Need „ The time is right“ (Active Curiosity) The SME market is waiting!
