Abstract

Open Source Software (contrasted with proprietary or “closed” software) has become a more widely accepted enterprise solution not withstanding some issues related to intellectual property rights and issues of liability and indemnification. Open Source Software (OSS) takes collaborative software development to a global extreme – OSS also provides a mechanism for decreasing time-to-market, improved quality, and reduced development costs. This panel will serve as a catalyst to discuss strategies, tools, and communities focused on the development and application of open source software.
