  • 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.

  • New Summer 2014 Training Workshop

    Open Science for Synthesis
    Software Skills for Early Career Scientists
    July 21 - August 8, 2014
    Santa Barbara, CA and Chapel Hill, NC

    Open Science for Synthesis is a unique bi-coastal training offered for early career scientists who want to learn new software and technology skills needed for open, collaborative, and reproducible synthesis research. UC Santa Barbara’s NCEAS and University of North Carolina’s Renaissance Computing Institute (RENCI) will co-lead this three-week intensive training workshop with participants in both Santa Barbara, CA and Chapel Hill, NC.

    Participants will receive hands-on guided experience using best practices in the technical aspects that underlie successful open science and synthesis – from data discovery and integration to analysis and visualization, and special techniques for collaborative scientific research, including virtual collaboration over the internet.

    The training weaves together several core themes via a mixture of instructive lectures, discussions, and exercises; these themes are further reinforced – and injected into the real-time synthetic scientific research process – through daily work on group synthesis projects. Core themes will address:

    Collaboration modes and technologies, virtual collaboration
    Data management, preservation, and sharing
    Data manipulation, integration, and exploration
    Scientific workflows and reproducible research
    Agile and sustainable software practices
    Data analysis and modeling
    Communicating results to broad communities

    How to Apply
    Applicants should be early-career researchers – here defined as students in the final stages of graduate work or researchers within 5 years post-Ph.D. We will consider applications from any country. Applications are now available online in the How to Apply section of the training site. The application requests biographical information and a series of skill assessment questions.

    Applications must be received no later than 5 PM PST on April 7, 2014.

  • The on-going growth of Open Source has major advantages for the public sector. With a Government agenda to boost the competitive market for software products, many high-quality open technologies are now readily available to the public sector. Furthermore, with Open Source particularly valued for its inherent flexibility, quality operating platform and cost-benefit value, it is increasingly becoming recognised as a powerful tool within public sector IT projects.

    This event will explore the growing opportunities and challenges of open solutions in a number of public sector facing environments to support its successful widespread adoption during the next few years.

  • April 30th @ 9-9:45am EDT

    As open source software adoption matures, organizations are increasingly looking for ways to improve their compliance processes. They are increasingly moving away from processes that involve manual auditing of a code base to more proactive approaches. Setting up a process for approving open source code, before it even enters the development environment helps ensure compliance issues are kept to a minimum.

    Join Protecode COO Norm Glaude as he shares his tips for implementing a package pre-approval process.

    What you will learn:
    -Common road blocks unmanaged open source code can present
    -Setting up an open source policy to ensure these roadblocks are avoided
    -Implementing a package pre-approval workflow process to ensure the policy is enforced throughout development

    Who should attend:
    -CTO’s and CIOs
    -Technology Managers
    -Corporate IP lawyers
    -Licensing Managers
    -Product Managers
    -Quality Managers
    -Software Developers
