How different software organizations will achieve economic gain in terms of software development productivity, to decrease the time and cost to development and improve quality of the software. The results of the paper show the most important and most critical open source software Author: Muhammad Faisal Akram, Ahmad Adnan.   The economics of software tells us that, in the long run, this is likely the case: either the demand-side will ultimately force sufficient improvements to the existing open source databases, or the supply-side will force the open .

The economics of open source software development. [Jürgen Bitzer; Philipp J H Schröder;] -- Open Source Software (OSS) development appears to present a stark contrast to traditional production. The phenomenon of open source has roots in a long tradition of sharing and cooperation in software development (see "A Long Tradition"), but Lerner and Tirole's research focused on three particular cases: those of Apache, Perl and Sendmail (see "The Fathers of Invention").
