SDForum presents a candid conversation with a distinguished panel of leading industry consulting firms building and deploying open source solutions at real customers.

Open source software is everywhere; deployment of open source is in all types of projects and industries. It is increasing faster than any other software deployment trend. Additionally, many more startups are looking for ways to monetize open source and attract venture capital investors.

The panel will discuss various open source services best practices, deployment experiences and engagement models. Among the questions they will answer are: How can companies be successful using open source? What effect will major software vendors' actions have on the opportunities for open source and startups? What are the untapped opportunities? What are customers expecting in the way of support and services?

The panel includes: Mark Brewer, CEO Covalent Technologies, Munwar Shariff, COO Cignex, and Roy Singham, Thoughtworks, Inc. The panel moderators are: Andrew Aitken, Olliance Group and Susanna Kass, Palamida.

$10 for SDForum members, $20 non-members.
