An approach of implementing Application-as-a-Service (AaaS) model with Open-Source Applications

Shahed Murshed
We analyzed the common requirements of small scale organizations and that triggered us to develop an AaaS Service model with Open Source applications.  ...  This paper presents an Application as a Service (AaaS) model using Open Source applications for File Sync, Share and Email solution for organizations.  ...  An important feature of this solution is that it is developed completely with Open Source applications and so only cost involved is for a small number of low cost hardware.  ...

Free and Open Source Software organizations: A large-scale analysis of code, comments, and commits frequency

Tadeusz Chełkowski, Dariusz Jemielniak, Kacper Macikowski, Sergi Lozano
2021 PLoS ONE  
As Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) increases in importance and use by global corporations, understanding the dynamics of its communities becomes critical.  ...  Moreover, our results suggest a greater decrease in the activities in large and well-established FOSS organizations.  ...  One possible interpretation of this phenomenon is that open source, as an approach to developing projects, has lost some of its appeal.  ...
