Event Description

Overview: This session will serve as a primer for individuals and organizations interested in open source software, and its ability to meet their business needs. Attendees will gain a better understanding of what open source software is, how it is developed, its characteristics that may be beneficial to their organization, and considerations for successful adoption. 

Non-technical managers will enhance their ability to work with and support their technical staff in planning and implementation. This session is delivered in non-technical language with an emphasis on helping you determine the business case for your organization. The session will also provide a basic framework for planning. Materials include resources for further investigation.

Why should you attend: If your organization isn't levering open source software to improve its operational efficiencies and maximize its investments in technology, you need to ask yourself why.
