The talk describes OW2 Consortium as a prominent example of a new generation of Open Source communities aiming at promoting a broad OSS stack and the development of business collaboration. OW2 includes both a software platform and a business one. The development of an ecosystem strategy balancing the community needs and business goals is the key to success. This talk is not an official OW2 presentation but it offers a general overview on OW2 structure and presents its main assets like project code base and activities, such as the Business Intelligence and Cloudware initiatives. Moreover, it gives the point of view of an OW2 founding member who is active in other OS initiatives and communities as well. This offers the chance to describe and compare different approaches to the open source domain, scoring them in order to mark the most prominent one, including different approaches, attitudes and specific goals in a common vision.>
