    As companies evaluate business social software and the relative merits
    of adoption, total cost of ownership (TCO) is often top of mind. This
    paper explores the differences between open source and Software as a
    Service (SaaS), and the impact of cloud computing, on the total cost of
    ownership. The Digital Opportunity Trust (DOT), an organization funded
    in part by the Cisco Systems Foundation and an IGLOO client, is also
    profiled as they migrate from an open source online business community
    to a SaaS-driven model.
