RTI's Open Community Source: Licensing and Pricing that Just Makes Sense Transportation. Energy. Defense. Industrial. Medical. These are big distributed systems with big architecture challenges. They push scale and complexity as never before. And they all face the same problem: software structure and costs are out of control. The technical response is becoming clear: standardize on common infrastructures. Unfortunately, current pricing and licensing models make this expensive. Infrastructure pricing must evolve to match infrastructure technology. RTI is responding with Open Community Source. This model offers the world's leading implementation of the OMG Data Distribution Service (DDS) standard free to software teams. It combines open community source licensing for DDS, royalty-free distribution, very low-cost commercial licenses, flexible support, and affordable advanced products. Together, the innovative technology and liberating pricing make common software architecture both achievable and affordable for the first time.

BUSINESS CHALLENGES 2012 RTI COMPANY CONFIDENTIAL 14. Fundamental Goal: CollaborationEnemies of Collaboration: Cost and Licensing Terms 2012 RTI COMPANY CONFIDENTIAL 15. Root Cause: License Scope Most infrastructure software scoped to a Project A concerted development effort by a distinct team of engineers Infrastructure software examples: operating systems, middleware, networking stacks Practical implications No sharing between licensed Projects Potentially high costs due to volume-based pricing schedules 2012 RTI COMPANY CONFIDENTIAL 16.
