Gartner Says Open-Core is the Emperor’s New Clothes


Attention corporate IT customers – this blog post is for you. If you haven’t already had an “open-core” software vendor knocking on your door you probably will be soon. It’s important that you’re able to separate the hype from the substance when you hear them talk of their innovative business model.

Just like every other one you’ve come to know.

The open-core emperor has no clothes.
