So what is it about Open Source that has made it a phenomenal success? The fact that it is free, and that it comes sans all of the licensing restrictions. Further, the business agility that open source offers is quickly eroding the main stream. Being ‘open’ is a big benefit in the world of closed network ecosystems.

Communities such as GitHub promote open source development and sharing, large organizations such as Toyota are opening up their patents. Tesla went open source for fostering the use of electric cars and increase the rate of adoption. The new Tesla powerwall is open source too. There are numerous benefits of switching over to open source and a lot of people are catching on.

This panel discussion throws light on the transformation that open source has brought about in the software world.
