Free and open source software

Free & Open Source Software Working Group

Stefane FERMIGIER, WP President - NUXEO, sf@fermigier.com

"Our Working Group was founded around a unique vision: to bring together SMEs, major companies, universities and research centers around R&D projects and business activities, to foster cooperation, innovation and value creation, within the framework of the open source values. With already more than 100 members, this ecosystem represents a huge opportunity for the Free & Open Source Software community (FOSS)."

 

FREE & OPEN SOURCE SOFTWARE, FROM DISRUPTION TO VALUE CREATION

Open source is still reshaping all aspects of the software industry, specially high growth sectors such as Big Data, Enterprise 2.0 or Mobile Applications. NOT using open source components is now considered the exception rather than the rule in almost all companies that pro-duce software, creating a tremendous opportunity for the Paris Region open source ecosystem, whose leadership has been recognized for a long time, from academic research teams to young innovative software vendors, from specialized consultancies to large systems integrators.

FREE & OPEN SOURCE SOFTWARE WORKING GROUP WITHIN SYSTEMATIC

The goals of the FOSS (Free & Open Source Software) Working Group are:
