This IDC Perspective offers a starting point to enterprises for identifying the potential value in externally sharing digital assets such as data or software and explores examples of mechanisms they can use to derive value from those digital assets.
"IDC research indicates that most organizations exclusively use the software they build internally, with no plans to distribute it outside of the company," said Nancy Gohring, research director for IDC's Future of Digital Innovation agenda program. "However, we're hearing from an increasing number of organizations that are developing creative initiatives for deriving real value from externally sharing data or software assets."
