Software ecosystems: Implications for strategy, business model and architecture
Paper in proceedings, 2011
Software product line companies increasingly expand their platform outside their organizational boundaries, in effect transitioning to a software ecosystem approach. In this tutorial, we discuss the emerging trend of software ecosystems and provide a overview of the key concepts and implications of adopting a software ecosystem approach. We define the notion of software ecosystems and introduce a taxonomy. Finally, we explore the implications of software ecosystems to the way companies build software.
