The 'Open Way'

The Open Way is more than a new software development or business model; it defines the characteristics of a culture. The open way thrives on broad collaboration and shared effort. It includes open source, open access, open data, open standards, open communities, and much more.
  • The open way is about possibility. Open solutions present a new way to solve old problems. To share ideas and effort.
  • The open way is a multiplier. It multiplies Knowledge; Effort; Inspiration; Creativity; and Innovation. The impact is exponential.
  • The open way opens doors. Open solutions offers a new perspective. It's about being 'open', not closed; about Collaboration, not isolation; about continuous Innovation, not stagnation.
