What is a software consulting firm doing contributing to Open
Source Software? Giving back to the community.
We all build on the shoulders of what others have contributed, whether it
is Kernighan and Ritchie or Tim Berners-Lee. There is a place for proprietary
code and rewarding true innovation, but there is also a place for sharing
the wealth and building off each other.
There is also the satisfaction of others using your code. And, in some situations,
there is more to be gained in giving away core building blocks and then offering
your services to help integrate these blocks into client's organizations.
For a consulting firm, our real value is in solving client's needs, which
is something we do better by offering services rather than selling components.
And for complex business needs, the real work is in the integration anyway.
In the flavour of Open Source, Deadman Consulting is one of
the key supporters of the "Generic
JTAPI and JCC Project". The project reflects Deadman Consulting's commitment
to pluggable enterprise systems and is released under the X11 license and
hosted on Sourceforge.net.
