ApacheCon Session

Your Open Source strategy sucks!

Every single corporation has to deal with Open Source. It's no time for "if" anymore, companies are knee-deep in the "how" phase. Yet, Open Source in corporate environments is much more than grabbing a package and installing it. Even in Open Source, "failing to plan is planning to fail": learn how you can make the most out of your Open Source experience by finding out how to persuade your boss that Open Source is a good thing, how to identify the right Open Source solutions to your needs and how to participate in online communities and get all the support you need. This talk will try to give the audience an overview on Open Source adoption, business models and risk management techniques for the corporate world.
