    One question

    Q: How can enterprise IT create cost-effective innovation?

    A: Look at your business landscape, evaluate your technology options, examine open source projects that fit your company strategy (customers, technology), and then participate. Firms can choose to either participate in open source projects (and benefit) or go the next step, and branch off open source projects to fit your core target customers or markets.
