Open source is everywhere. Software delivered as a service is a viable business model. We have seen renewed dynamism in the software industry over the last two years, albeit not for every software company. New channels, new business models have reshaped the business.
In that context, we are asking:
+ What is a software company today?
+ What's next for software as a service?
+ How far will open source go to reshape the industry?
+ Is the traditional licensed based software business dead?
+ What is the value of intellectual property in this new landscape? Does digital rights management have a role to play? Web 2.0 is all about software: fad or must-have? How will software continue to be this incredible melting pot for technical and business innovation?
+ What is the future of software?
Join an exceptional group of software executives who will share their vision of the current state and future of the software business, and answer your questions to understand what is at stake in the industry.
