    • Open Source is Changing the Information Management IndustrySunday, May 29, 2011
    • What is Open Source? • Definition emerged 1998 - with a new model of software development and release - Mozilla (Netscape Navigator) • Roots back to 1980s - Free Software Foundation • Practices rooted in development that evolved into the internet • 1960s/70s - early example of open, participatory software development • 1998 - Founding of Open Software Initiative • consistent terminology, sanctioned software license agreements, definitions and practices • http://opensource.org/Sunday, May 29, 2011
    • What is Open Source? • Simply? • A way a software developer (a vendor or a community) licenses and distributes its source code • No charge for the software, availability of code, welcomes contributions, no restrictions on how software is used • Variety of individual license agreements govern how it is distributed or used inside other products. • Examples: GPL, LGPL, Apache, BSD, Eclipse, others...Sunday, May 29, 2011
    • 2010 Was a Turning Point in ECMSunday, May 29, 2011
