  20. 20. Towards a digital services sustainability model Inspired by Ross Gardler, OSS Watch, Software Sustainability Maturity Model: http://oss-watch.ac.uk/resources/ssmm • Seed: service is an idea and a blank canvas • Germination: service is starting to take shape, but is little more than a proposal • Seedling: early stage implementation – unlikely to survive Image source: http://www.harvesttotable.com/wp-content/ uploads/2011/04/Germination1.jpg
