Profitability First, Then Open Source, Works for Projity

“Projity is a company that provides two alternatives to
Microsoft’s popular Project application. Project-On-Demand is
software-as-a-service (SAAS) code that runs in any browser and is
available via a monthly subscription. OpenProj is a desktop version
of the application that is built on Java and is licensed with the
Common Public Attribution License (CPAL). Though Projity only
recently ‘open sourced’ its project management application, CEO
Marc O’Brien says that the company’s plan ‘the entire time’ was to
eventually do just that.
