The RISCOSS (Managing Risk and Costs in Open Source Software Adoption) project was initiated to address issues raised by communication equipment manufacturers looking to integrate open source code into their products. They needed a comprehensive approach that would integrate the whole decision-making chain, from technology criteria to strategic concerns.
