Marketing Symposium

Business opportunities found in the active participation with open source organizations
Sylvain Wallez, Co-founder Anyware Technologies and past Vice President of Apache Software Foundation

Abstract: The rise of open source has heavily changed the sofware industry, as lots of high quality software is now available for free, and this has challenged the traditional business of many software publishing companies. But new opportunities have also emerged, and active participation with open source organizations can be a key asset in a company in many areas: technical, business and marketing. The talk will introduce the various members of an open source project's ecosystem, and how each of them can benefit in having an active role in the community.

Leveraging the Web Site - Ian Skerrett, Eclipse Foundation

Roundtable Discussion: Selling Eclipse to Senior Executives
Eclipse is well known and understood in the developer and engineering community. However, senior executives at large corporations are typically less informed of the benefits Eclipse to their organizations. In this session, we will have a round table discussion to brainstorm different benefits, messages and tactics that can be used to sell Eclipse and Eclipse-based products to senior executives.
