on 13 September 2021

November 10, 2021

Canonical, Nextcloud, Collabora, Linbit, OpenNebula and Factor Group will present business perspectives on the use of open source in enterprise environments at the Enterprise Open Source Summit event scheduled for November 10, 2021.

Open source solutions are becoming increasingly popular in all areas of business as an important part of a digital strategy to build an open and secure info-communication environment in today’s organizations.

However, the successful use of open source solutions in organizations is subject to certain conditions. Solutions must meet the requirements for use in large organizations, integrate with existing info-communication infrastructure and provide continuity of business processes in organizations.

We are pleased to invite everyone to participate in the Enterprise Open Source Summit, a virtual event focused on transition strategies and the subsequent successful use of Open Source solutions in the corporate environment.

The summit will be held on November 10th, under the aegis of Canonical, creator of the most popular among developers of Open Source operating system Ubuntu and environments OpenStack and Kubernetes. The event will feature presentations by industry leaders in Open Source solutions – Canonical, Nextcloud, Collabora, Linbit, OpenNebula and Factor Group.

The organizers of this virtual event have many years of experience with open source projects in different business areas – finance, retail, energy, manufacturing, telecom, public sector and others. In their speeches, speakers from managing companies- organizers will talk about the strategy of developing the projects they lead in the global OpenSource industry, talk about the importance of working with upstream projects, the community of developers behind them, organizing full-fledged support for solutions, as well as the risks of unofficial branches (fork-versions) of projects. At the event several customers and integrator partners will speak, who are already using these solutions in their organizations and projects, and who will share their accumulated experience, and participants will be able to get answers to their questions firsthand from industry leaders. The following questions and strategies will be discussed at the event:

  • Migration from deployed commercial products to open source solutions
  • Commercial support for Open Source solutions and related concerns (stability of OpenSource solutions, timing and
  • process of solutions integration with existing infrastructure, vendor lock-in avoidance, customization of solutions, etc.)
  • Security and creation of fault-tolerant solutions

and many more.
