[dsdp-pmc] FW: Project success metric

Hi folks,

 

See below. Can I get a list of commercial products / companies that use the technology from each of the DSDP projects? This is probably good information to gather periodically anyway, but in this case it’s for a study.

 

Thanks in advance,

 

Doug

Dear Doug,
I am wrting to you as a follow-up of a discussion with Bjorn Freeman.

I am a graduate student at Carleton University, enrolled in the Technology Innovation Management program. My thesis is on the topic of "Open source project diversity and success" and will be based on data from Eclipse. My supervisor is prof. Stoyan Tanev (tanev@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx, cell 613-291-3105).
In my study I need to define project success and need to ask you one question. Please answer it at your convenience.
 
- Do you know how many commercial parties have adopted the software developed within the scope of the activities of your project, and if possible, can you list them?
Your response will be critical for the finalization of my study as well as for its potential value for Eclipse.
Thank you very much advance.
Kind regards,
Heather
