This session will present—in a question/answer format—an overview of ebizQ research findings into the various ways that open source software (OSS) enables both infrastructure and applications software to enable major IT trends such as service oriented architecture (SOA) and business process management (BPM). Panelists include representatives of the two leading industry consortia for those categories, the Linux Foundation for infrastructure software and the Open Solutions Alliance for applications. The panel will discuss opportunities, risks, and best practices for adopting Open Source technology for BPM, SOA (or both) as well as other important user needs.

Attend this webcast and learn about:

  • How open source software has been successfully implemented in BPM, SOA and other environments
  • How enterprise software users base the choice of an open source stack depending on what application/services/solution type (TP, BI, ECM, etc.) (and why)
  • The maturity of open source software in various industries
  • How involvement with the open source community can help your industry

As Community Manager, Byron will blog and podcast to keep the ebizQ community fully informed on the latest news and breakthroughs relevant to enterprise BPM. Byron will be responsible for bringing you breaking news on BPM daily, writing feature articles and sourcing content from other analysts, industry associations and vendors for publication on ebizQ. Finally, each week, Byron will compile the most important news and views in an e-mail newsletter for ebizQ's ever-growing BPM community.

Byron is also the principal of IT Investment Research, which is aimed at institutional and individual investors in IT, or anyone who enjoys peering under the covers of "the financials," where large companies and emerging IPOs like to bury their most interesting facts. His main area of interest is investment opportunities in enterprise software.

He is also senior director of product management at SpikeSource, a venture-funded company specializing in the test, integration, delivery and support of open source solutions.
