The CENATIC Foundation, in keeping with its objective of raising awareness about open source technologies, regularly releases research reports that study the different aspects of open source software.
The ultimate aim of these reports is to boost the competitiveness of the Spanish business sector by providing information about the business opportunities offered by these technologies and identifying international projects that can be implemented and applied to Spanish society.The report we present here analyses the International Status of Open Source Software, enabling us to put the current situation in Spain in context based on the knowledge of technology trends around the world, the promotion and use of open technologies in the Spanish Private and Public sectors, and the contribution of Spanish Communities of Developers and Universities to important initiatives on an international scale.
It is, in conclusion, a thorough overview of the international context of open source software, creating a starting point for the identification of new business opportunities for Spanish companies, and new fields of study for CENATIC to continue promoting the use and development of open source software in Spain.
