Cooperation with OSBF & OSR Group: WeWebU Expands Open Source Network

,----[ Quote ]
| Furthermore, on its way to an Open Source 
| vendor WeWebU works together with Prof. Dr. 
| Dirk Riehle, leader of the OSR Group at the 
| University of Erlangen-Nuremberg. Thus, 
| they quickly can integrate newest trends 
| and research results into their development 
| process. Prof. Dr. Riehle knows the 
| advantages of an Open Source strategy: âWe 
| see that Open Source marketing and 
| development models are ahead of traditional 
| closed source approaches. Open Source 
| allows software product companies to go to 
| market faster with a better product and at 
| lower costs.â With this method, WeWebU 
| wants to be up-to-date and close to the 
| usersâ requirements as well.

Smart Grid Trends Are All Up

,----[ Quote ]
| Industry-wise, this week has seen a major 
| acquisition announcement - over $1 billion - 
| ABB taking Ventyx, as well as Honeywell (News 
| - Alert)acquiring Akuacom. The latter is 
| particularly interesting for the Open Source 
| angle. Wearing my telecom hat, Open Source 
| has been a big deal in the voice space, and 
| it's starting to find new homes, including 
| smart grid. Followers of our portal will know 
| there have been interesting developments this 
| week on other fronts, such as wireless 
| networks, electric vehicles and renewable 
| energy initiatives.
