PALO ALTO, Calif. - March 22, 2019 - PRLog -- Today the Open Source Initiative® (OSI), the global non-profit formed to educate about and advocate for the benefits of open source software and communities, is pleased to announce the corporate sponsorship of Daily Fantasy Cafe and Lineups.com. The contributions from these diverse companies underscore the broad appeal and applicability of open source software across industries.

Over 20 years of work, the OSI has constantly found adoption of, and contributions to, open source software growing, year over year, as companies realize the benefits and value of collaborative communities of practice. No longer limited to the data centers and development shops of tech-companies, open source software is now pervasive across diverse industries, all seeking to reduce costs, drive innovation, decrease time to market, increase quality, and avoid vendor lock-in.

"The OSI is actively engaged with organizations across government, education, manufacturing, agriculture, entertainment—everywhere.  As new industries emerge, like fantasy sports, they're choosing to be, 'open source first,'" says Patrick Masson, General Manager of the Open Source Initiative. "Daily Fantasy Cafe and Lineups really show how broad the appeal is now, and most inspiring, how companies that benefit from open source choose to contribute back. Open source is a collaborative effort, projects need code, community, and cash."

"Open Source is the foundation of our online businesses, and we are proud to contribute our time, energy and funds to support the cause. We made a cognizant decision to utilize open source as we believe it is a more sustainable and stronger solution moving forward. We are doing what we can to continue the movement" added, Lineups.com Founder, Sam Shefrin.

Corporate sponsorship allows organizations with a clear commitment to open source to support the OSI's work in promoting and protecting open source software, development, and communities through charitable donations. Funding from sponsors not only ensures the OSI's continued operations, but also supports vital programs such as the License Review Process, educational initiatives and community driven working groups. Companies interested in giving back in support of the OSI's mission can learn more on the OSI website.
