Why is OSS important?
1 Step: Open Computing
Improving information sharing by simplifying integration of disparate technologies
Promoting interoperability by using open published specifications
Promoting innovation by leveraging community development
Accelerating open standards adoption
Increasing collaboration by easily extending business processes e.g. SOA, Web 2.0
Innovating on top of common hardware specifications
Open standards Open architecture Open source Community Innovation Open Computing Open Computing
Active participation and projects development

Open source can be important to drive innovation because of community-based collaboration .
Open source and traditional software development co-exist today and will continue to do so.
We do not focus on the philosophy of open source but rather on the value it provides within the total cost of ownership .
Cloud computing and the desktop are key to understand how open source will be part of the next waves of innovation
