(Strategy Goal) Open source and digital sovereignty
In order to concentrate on the business an organization runs, many constraints have to be eliminated. This is easier with less constraints resp. higher sovereignty. Trust is one the most important factors in our lives and for the business. So, the more we trust software and hardware to process our modern oil, the data, the better. As opposed to believe what a marketing departments says, it is better to know or prove the software is trustworthy. This is or can be done with software or hardware in accordance with the 4 (or 10) freedoms. And if you cannot do it yourself, the least you can do is to expect that hidden unwanted functionality cannot stay hidden for long, so it is more or less useless to try to add.
Here are some advantages:
- Maintaining an open source alternative
- Identifying key dependency risks
- Decoupling from 3rd party problems
- Improving negotiating position
