Last week here on PAOSS, we presented the double ecosystem OSS model, as shown via the two bands (red and blue) in the diagram below.
The outer pairing (red) shows an OSS ecosystem that is provided by the CSP but enhanced by the CSP‘s customers and used to run the customers’s e-businesses.
Long-time readers will have noticed how this ties into the Above-the-Line / Below-the-Line (ATL / BTL) model discussed in a post entitled, “A new category of OSS.”
