Keynote

The Business and Economics of Open Source in the Enterprise
Stormy Peters, OpenLogic

Track: Keynote
Date: Thursday, July 10
Time: 8:45am - 9:30am
Location: Oregon Ballroom

Using open source technologies, companies and governments are cutting costs, gaining flexibility, and discovering powerful new sources of business value. However, they must also learn how to maintain solutions that include both proprietary and open source software. Learn how to assess the benefits, costs, and risks of open source versus proprietary software in your organization. Learn when to use open source software profitably in your business, how to pick a license, how to build relationships with the open source community, and how to manage open source projects in your organization, along with your proprietary software. This talk will be based on Hewlett-Packard's experience with open source and Martin Fink's new book, "The Business and Economics of Linux and Open Source."
