Project Services : OW2 provides three types of services to its projects. First, OW2 operates a technical infrastructure by delivering tools and collaborative services to project teams. Second, OW2 provides community services by setting up the decision making process and organizing activities. Third, OW2 provides marketing services by showcasing projects through its marketplace, industry event and social media. In 2018, OW2 will deploy it's 'OW2 Process', a combination of these services into an integrated approach to add value to open source projects.
At OW2, our job is to promote the development of open-source software for complex information systems: middleware, generic business applications, cloud computing platforms, IoT, etc. We are supported by a vibrant open source community and business ecosystem. In 2017, OW2 celebrates its 10th anniversary. We are proud to be the leading open-source software organization in Europe. We help build healthy and sustainable open source projects that reach their markets. OW2 hosts some one hundred technology Projects, including ASM, Bonita, Chameleon, CLIF, DocDoku, Easybeans, Emerginov, Fractal, FusionDirectory, JOnAS, JORAM, JOTM, Knowage, LemonLDAP:NG, Lutece, OCCInterface, PetalsESB, Prelude, ProActive, RocketChat, SAT4J, Spagic, Spago4Q, Talend Studio, Telosys, WebLab and XWiki. Several of these projects are combined into market-driven Initiatives (Open Source Cloudware, Security and Privacy, Futur Internet Software and Services, Big Data Initiatives) which facilitate their implementations into business solutions by systems integrators, OEMs and end-users.
