Consortium Proposes Model Open Source Guidelines for Businesses

by Sabrina I. Pacifici on August 1, 2005

“Business Readiness Ratings (BRR) is being proposed as a new standard model for rating open source software. It is intended to enable the entire community (enterprise adopters and developers) to rate software in an open and standardized way. BRR is a community initiative that is being sponsored by Carnegie Mellon West Center for Open Source Investigation, O’Reilly CodeZoo, SpikeSource and Intel. Phase one is a public comment period…The ultimate goal of BRR is to give companies a trusted, unbiased source for determining whether the open source software they are considering is mature enough to adopt.”
