Google's Tensorflow and Microsoft's Visual Studio Code are prime examples of enterprises gaining the upper hand in their respective markets by giving away software. Application development and delivery (AD&D) professionals should read this report to understand how OSS is changing the innovation landscape for all industries and how to create an OSS strategy for their enterprise.
