Hash: SHA1

The Power and ROI of Open Source

,----[ Quote ]
| The open source symposium was held at Taj Residency, Bangalore on 17th and 
| 18th October, 2006. The event was conducted by Red Hat, sponsored by AMD and  
| the research data was based on IDC’s research and surveys. The speakers 
| talked about the trends in the industry, the business and revenue model of 
| Red Hat, how open source can be applied to architecture, software, middleware 
| and hardware.    


Open Source: The Next Frontier for Data Quality Management

,----[ Quote ]
| It's clear that an open source solution for data quality offers many benefits 
| to clients over conventional solutions. Open source provides all businesses 
| access to critical data quality solutions that can positively impact their 
| overall profitability, growth, and competitive position. Furthermore, the 
| existence of the open source community enables a solution users' immediate 
| access to shared knowledge and implementation enhancements, rather than 
| waiting months or years for another software release. Open source can offer 
| organizations the most customer-centric data quality solution available in 
| the marketplace today with flexibility, customization, and significant cost 
| advantages.

| project with more than 20 committers and used all around the globe, with more 
| than 70,000 downloads now.

Open-source venture investing hits an all-time high

,----[ Quote ]

| along comes the biggest quarter in open source's (still young) history: 
| $203.75 million raised, as reported by The 451 Group. This trumped the 
| previous record of $193.6 million from Q4 2006.    


How Open Technology Could Lead Us Out Of Recession

,----[ Quote ]
| At the same time, the United States has not only lost its former dominance in 
| world technology, it is rapidly achieving a status of "a nation of 
| shopkeepers".  
| We need to remove the barriers to entering the market. We need to be the 
| innovators in science and technology again. We need to regain the excitement 
| we had about scientific progress back in the 1940's and 1950's. We need 
| technicians in white lab coats, and we need to look up to them because they 
| are giving us wonderful things like atomic power and trips to the moon again. 
| We need kids to be excited about getting a chemistry set again. We need to 
| let those garage start-ups break out of that garage and open up their own 
| factory. We need to bring back homebrew computer clubs. We need people who 
| can say that they know something about computers besides how to turn one on.        
| In short, we need more geeks. Geeks make money.


No Recession at Red Hat

,----[ Quote ]
| It is flattering to be mentioned, Mr. Whitehurst said, but he noted that 
| corporate customers and the industry benefit from what he called Red 
| Hat’s “Switzerland status” — not being a province of one of the major powers 
| in the technology industry.
