About OISE 2015 Workshop

Open innovation leverages data, knowledge and human resources from beyond organizational boundaries and enables new paths to the market for products by combining internal and external ideas into architectures and systems which their requirements are defined by business models. Open innovation inspired business models to use both sources of ideas in order to provide value and to define internal mechanisms for claiming some proportion of that value. The tremendous success of Open Source Software in the last twenty years have ignited and encouraged several new movements for collective innovation. Crowdsourcing, Global Software Development and outsourcing are among the types of open innovation. Crowdsourcing is taking advantage of web technologies and social media with the ability to actively involve users and control the community to achieve organizational tasks and often uses outsourcing and sophisticated web technologies.

The OISE 2015 workshop aims at bridging the gap between Open Innovation in business domain and its applicability in software engineering domain by establishing a community of researchers.
