  1. 1. Fight between carnival and lent … and how to become rich on free software Piotr Karwatka, CoCEO Divante

  4. 4. What’s Enterprise Open Source? - Open Source software is inevitable - Enterprise Open Source = projects backed by proffesional companies: Magento, Wordpress, RHEL, MySQL, Android … - Often along with commercial licences, support and services - Long ago stopped to be scored as “enthusiast based”, non-professional projects. - Open Source is great for being used by Enterprises - fosters standarization / distribution - no vendor lock-in, - quality - are weable to write better code than contributors like Google, Microsoft …? - community and support, - security, - commercial services, SLA, - it’s so pragmmatic, developers love it, no marketing fluff, - Hell has frozen over! - Even Microsoft open sourced .NET, ported SQL Server to Linux and integrated Ubuntu to Windows The Inevitable: Understanding the 12 Technological Forces That Will Shape Our Future by Kevin Kelly)
  5. 5. Open Source Business Models - Dual Licensing - Open Core (ex: Magento) - what you pay for: some extra features to be in commercial version, - notes: how to make Core version good enough? - Partners (ex: Magento) - what you pay for: Partners pay for certification - notes: why to become a partner? - Consulting services (ex: Red Hat Linux) - what you pay for: customization, adding new features, trainings, - notes: not very scalable, - SaaS / Enterprise Cloud (ex: Mautic, Heroku, SugarCRM) - what you pay for: hosting, SLA, provisioning, - notes: it’s no longer so open as it should be - Mixed (ex: Magento)
  6. 6. Fight between carnivale and fest Open Source products rarely are commercial successes comparing to proprietary equivalents
  7. 7. Why Open Source fails? More: why Open Source fails. CIO Magazine "If we look at Red Hat's market, 50 percent of potential customers may use Fedora (the free Linux distribution,) and 50 percent use Red Hat Enterprise Linux (the version which is supported and maintained by Red Hat on a subscription basis.) So a large part of the potential market is carved off – why should people pay the 'Red Hat tax'?" Peter Levine, a partner at Andreessen Horowitz. - Revenue Limits - ex. Magento vs. Demandware - Uneven playing field - ex. KVM vs. VMware Why should customer pay for commercial version / features / services? Partners can canibalize software vendor businnes when original value offer is too low.
  8. 8. Example - Magento Magento valuation when sold to Permira - along with GSI Commerce unit - was 925M$ (with 1.5% market share) Demandware valueation when sold to Salesforce was … 2.8B$ (with 25% market share) - strong Community, very active partner eco-system, mixed revenue streams - … but most of revenue are probably NOT from licenses, - 1.x offers too low value offer Community vs. Enterprise - only around 25 EE licences sold in 2015 Magento: By Developers for Developers. Demandware: More Business focused. Everything depends on how do you define success!
  9. 9. VARs (Value Added Resellers) and Agencies! Who benefits the most in Open Source world? It’s great to built your service or added value business on top of Open Source: - you use standarized / commonly recognized base, - starting point is low - not have to built product at first, - you can focus on business value, extending, - you can achieve better results than software vendor because your value is more appreciable by business customers who realy pay - you can use all Open Source Business model as well. So why anybody build open source projects? It always depends on how you define success! Use your strengths and focus on business value!
  10. 10. How to survive as product vendor in Open Source? At the time they sold MySQL AB to Sun in 2008, 70 percent of the company’s income came from licenses. “That was the reason that MySQL had a huge valuation,” Widenius said. “We were a product company and people had to pay for it in certain situations.” BSL (Business Source License), FAIR.IO, OSE (Open Source Eventually) - Idea initialy wasn’t mean for aiming commercial success but for founding MariaDB foundation - But it’s really interesting for enterprise products! - Mixed approach: - Always Open Source or Open Source from some point (OSE approach) - Free to some point (CPUs, accounts …?) - VBP - Value Based Pricing - ”success share” - No questions about “Why to pay” with all other benefits of open software - Still great for Agencies - there is license fee to share!
