What do innovative companies have in common?
WSO2, SUSE and Yenlo serve some of the most innovative enterprises around the world, and we’ve found that these successful businesses have a lot in common. Enterprises able to adopt today’s leading technologies and best practices obtain competitive advantage by attracting and serving their customers with greater reach, efficiency, and insight. Characteristic of such thriving enterprises is that they are transforming into a “Connected Business” – employees, partners, customers, and communities working seamlessly together.

Let’s make IT part of the business success.
Mobile-first and API-first design, big data analytics, online store experiences, agile development and operations, open source strategy, and IaaS and PaaS cloud-based services represent huge opportunities to transform IT from a cost-sink to the forefront of business success.

Why WSO2, SUSE and Yenlo
WSO2, SUSE and Yenlo offer a complete set of open source tools for building such a connected business. Streamline operations and provide an infrastructure for innovation using SUSE Cloud and SUSE Manager.

Team up with Yenlo’s experienced consultants to put these systems in place efficiently.

Some open source projects make it very simple to understand what license applies to the published works. Unfortunately, not all projects are created equal.

Despite all of the best intentions to share with the world, determining what licensing terms apply to an open source file or project is sometimes a lot more complicated than just looking for the one license file.

Protecode COO Norm Glaude will explore copyright and license declarations in open source code, packages and projects, and how these may apply to your final product.

When: September 24th 2014 at 9am EST
Repeat: September 24th 2014 at 2pm EST

What you will learn:
•A brief over view of open source license and copyright declarations
•The implications of using open source in your product
•A step by step process for uncovering hard to find license and copyright information in your product
•Steps to take to ensure your product is compliant

Who should attend:
•CTOs and CIOs
•Technology Managers
•Corporate IP lawyers
•Licensing Managers
•Product Managers
•Quality Managers
•Software Developers

The Educause Conference is a widely regarded and well attended event in the higher education calendar. This year, it takes place in Orlando between September 29th and October 2nd. Attendance of several thousands of delegates from North American and global higher education is not unusual.

Whilst there are many presentations involving open initiatives at the conference, there are few focal points where those engaged in such initiatives can meet, network and share experiences. Single sessions, and even singly sponsored events around the conference can get "lost" very easily.

The Open Source Initiative and the Apereo Foundation, an open source initiative based in higher education, have organized an "open" reception, sponsored by multiple open initiatives in higher education. The Open Reception is a place where those involved across the spectrum of open content, open source software, open access publishing, open data, open analytics and more can network with each other and other delegates.
