Open Source Business Review
Wednesday and Thursday, August 3 - 4

The Open Source Business Review (OSBR) is an executive level conference featuring two captivating days of sessions focused on the needs of enterprise executives (CXO) and IT managers.

OSBR will congregate the most prominent open source minds to highlight how open source is changing IT in the enterprise, and demonstrate how it can benefit you now and in the future. At OSBR, you'll learn directly from IT executives who have managed open source successfully within their organizations.

Sessions range from evaluating open source and calculating ROI, skill building, governance models, using services to manage risks, new trends in licensing, and many others trenchant issues. Attendees will learn how to avoid the most common mistakes and pitfalls and how to take full advantage of an emerging set of best practices for open source adoption. Some of the insightful OSBR speakers include:
