Analyzing and Managing Complex Software Ecosystems: A Framework to Understand Value in Information Systems

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleResearchpeer-review

Abstract

Managing complex software ecosystems, such as free open source software projects, is crucial for software-producing organizations. We present a framework that helps visualize complex ecosystem settings, gain insights on value engines, and describe relationships between the ecosystem partners.
