Open Source Business Alliance

The Open Source Business Alliance - OSB Alliance for short - is Europe's biggest network of companies and organizations developing, building and using open source software.

The aim of the OSB Alliance is to improve the success of open source software and other forms of open collaboration. The OSB Alliance achieves its objectives, through the dissemination of information, the creation of positive conditions for producers and users, as well as through the active networking of manufacturers, customers and service providers. Interoperability between different open source systems and proprietary software in particular plays an important role.
