The global availability that open source offers enterprises presents an enormous opportunity to reduce IT costs, but only if myriad licensing, security, and support issues can be addressed. Companies that help enterprises address these concerns are poised for rapid growth—if it all comes together!
In this evening Under the Radar event, we'll showcase four private companies playing in and enhancing this emerging market. They'll demo their product to a panel of industry experts who are active in this ecosystem, along with an audience of early-adopter technology insiders. Both audience and experts will get a chance to offer feedback and ask questions about favorite features, areas for improvement, the ideal industry partnerships, and growth strategy.
The Four Presenting Companies:
• Black Duck Software
• Open Country
• The 451 Group—Raven Zachary, Senior Analyst & Practice Head, Open Source
• IBM—Deborah Magid, Director, Software Strategy, Venture Capital Group
• Novell—Martin Buckley, Director, Product Management, Systems and Resource Management
• SAP—Thomas Odenwald, SAP Research
