Open Source Software: A Global Perspective
Paul Dravis, Dravis Group

Track: Emerging Topics
Date: Wednesday, July 28
Time: 5:20pm - 6:05pm
Location: Eugene


The session assists decision-makers and project managers in assessing the open source software technology option. In developing an understanding of global interest in, and use of, open source software, Dravis discusses initiatives by governments, a selection of private sector uses, and support by commercial technology providers. Case studies illustrate open source software use in a variety of contexts, with a focus on lessons learned from the project efforts.
