Collaborative Software Initiative (CSI), the company that introduced the market-changing collaborative approach to building and deploying software products at a fraction of the cost of traditional methods, was founded in 2007 by Stuart Cohen, a veteran IT executive and former chief executive officer at the Open Source Development Labs.
CSI engages the power of community members, customers and partners to form core teams, providing the technology-enabled, open collaboration venue for subject matter experts and CSI to develop and deliver high value enterprise software with increased business value. CSI offers the products to a broader base of customers under an open source license or an annual subscription which includes commercial support. The collaborative approach results in more innovative, less expensive, sustainable software products that leverage open standards for community members, customers and partners across the ecosystem.
CSI delivers on the promise that collaboration fosters innovation, creating sustainable software products.
