Middleware is the new frontier for open source and brings opportunities to contain costs, to focus
on innovative engineering, to find new sources of revenue and to go to market with unique competitive
advantages. Since its inception as a consortium, ObjectWeb can claim a number of successful achievements: it has established itself as a recognized stakeholder in the OSS marketplace; it has developed a strong portfolio of high-quality technologies supported by a number of projects; and it has recruited a variety of high-visibility members from industry, government and academia.
With a new organization and an ever growing international impact, ObjectWeb is becoming a premier source of industry grade middleware. The benefits of open standard compliant, production-grade Java middleware is made available to everyone as an alternative, or as a complement, to proprietary solutions.
In this presentation, youíll learn how open source players come together to build an ecosystem where users find high quality software and professional services. Case studies of open-source middleware deployed in production in government, healthcare, financial institutions and more will demonstrate that, however hidden, open source middleware is now a mainstream option that you should consider too.
