Creating a new open source digital workplace platform.

At the Plone Conference 2014 in Bristol, Guido Stevens presented the Plone Intranet Consortium to an audience of Plone core developers. The presentation focused on the need for a new business model for open source development, and the specific traction we're achieving within the Consortium already.

Plone Conference 2014 - The Plone Intranet Consortium

The "spare time" model of doing open source is broken. We need a better model. In the Plone Intranet Consortium, a dozen Plone companies are jointly investing in the creation of a high-quality out-of-the-box open source intranet platform based on Plone. What is different is not just the funding model, but also the design-first approach we're taking.

Slides of the presentation are available on SlideShare:

The Consortium is now working on creating the alpha release, codename: Mercury, which is scheduled early 2015. We'll inform a wider audience via a website and a series of workshops, in the run-up to the Mercury release. Stay tuned!
