  1. 1. Can we really runour businesses on<br />Open Source Software?<br />Danny Windham, CEO, Digium, Inc.<br />
  2. 2. 2<br />
  3. 3. OK, but why would you?<br />#1:<br />To save money<br />Estimates suggest that adoption of<br />open-source software has resulted in savings<br />of about $60 billion per year to consumers<br />#2:<br />Protection<br />against a vendor ‘owning’ the IT infrastructure<br />#3:<br />Ease<br />of customization<br />Source: Gartner & Standish Group<br />
  4. 4. What is Open Source Software?<br />Open-source software (OSS) is...<br />Computer software that is available in source code form<br />Normally delivered under a software license that permits<br />users to study, change, and improve the software<br />Open source software is very often developed<br />in a public, collaborative manner<br />Some open source software is licensed in a fashion<br />that meets the requirements of the Open Source Definition<br />
  5. 5. What is the Open Source Definition?<br />Software meets the Open Source<br />Definition if the license...<br /><ul><li>Requires the source code to be made available
  6. 6. Demands license terms must apply to all
  7. 7. Permits Derived Works
  8. 8. Requires free redistribution (as in speech)
  9. 9. Does not restrict other software
  10. 10. Is technology-neutral
  11. 11. Does not discriminate against persons or groups
  12. 12. Does not discriminate against fields of endeavor
  13. 13. Is not specific to a product </li></li></ul><li>Types of Open Source Software<br />Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) <br /><ul><li>Source code is freely available
  14. 14. License meets Open Source Definition</li></ul>Commercial Open Source Software (COSS)<br /><ul><li>Contains some element of FOSS, but constrained in some way by commercial terms
  15. 15. Mixed source applications
  16. 16. Some free and some closed source
  17. 17. Freemium business model</li></ul>Dual license model<br /><ul><li>FOSS that is also available under a proprietary license</li></li></ul><li>What is Open Source?<br />Open Source is NOT a business model<br />Open Source IS a development model<br />Open Source CAN be a marketing model<br />

  29. 29. Case Study<br />Humanitarian Relief<br />Solution:<br />Rele Anmwe (Humanitarian Project), using OSS software, quickly and inexpensively created a communications system which enabled individuals to reach emergency services (hospital, pharmacies, food, shelter and distribution centers)<br />OSS voice recognition technology allowed<br />the callers to receive information in their<br />native language – and allowed those<br />individuals who due to injuries were unable<br />to use a telephone keypad.<br />Result:<br />The Haitian people were able to contact emergency services in their area<br />
  30. 30. Case Study<br />Not-for-Profit Adoption<br />Challenge:<br />Over one billion people in under served countries around the world do not have basic access to clean water, sanitation, electricity or telecommunications<br />
  31. 31. Case Study<br />Not-for-Profit Adoption<br />Solution:<br />INVENEO (Not-for-Profit Entity in CA) uses OSS software along with solar-powered PCs to provide basic computing and communications capabilities to villages in need<br />Result:<br /><ul><li>The difference between life and death (medical applications)
  32. 32. An increase of 50% - 100%+ profit on crops(commerce applications)
  33. 33. A better future for the children (education applications)
