Next week I will be at the Gartner Open Source Summit in Phoenix. Looking forward to their predictions about the size of the Open Source IT Services market, and Optaros’ place within it.

Optaros is a sponsor and will have a booth – stop by and say hello!.

“By 2010, most IT organizations will have formal Open Source management and acquisition strategies” Mark Driver, Open Source Summit Chair. Will you be ready?

As this new software model merges into more everyday applications, the second Gartner Open Source Summit is an opportunity to fully explore the challenges of adopting it – as well as a chance to meet the vendors at the forefront of the movement.

Open source is, and will continue to be, at the head of a sea-change in the world of information technology. With some 50% of IT personnel calling themselves “beginners” when it comes to open source, the Summit offers a rare chance to go from “zero to 60” in critical Open Source IT know-how. Attend the Summit and position yourself as a leader as you examine how to deliver the benefits of Open Source technology to your organization.
