Microsoft s Open Source Licenses » The TEC Blog
Licenses Filed Under ( FOSS Ecosystem , Industry Observation ) by Josh Chalifour  ( see bio )   This post is not an oxymoron . The Open Source Initiative recently approved two Microsoft licenses (the Microsoft Reciprocal License and the Microsoft Public License ) as compliant with the open source definition . Why would Microsoft want to publish an open source license? The very idea of Microsoft participating in the open source community might sound odd. After all, hasn’t Microsoft been one of the

OSS OPEN SOURCE FORUM: amount of news and gossip about open source over the past year. Between the SCO lawsuits, the Microsoft Windows versus Linux TCO campaign, and the IBM Linux Everywhere advertising blitz, open source seems to have gotten more coverage than the Brad and Jennifer split. You might be forgiven for thinking the whole open source thing is overblown—plenty of smoke but no fire. You d be wrong. Open source has been gathering steam and is now a technology that you must take into account in your IT planning.

Single Source or Best of Breed - The Debate Continues
This will never be a clear-cut decision - it is all about the trade-offs.

OSS OPEN SOURCE FORUM: - but a few possible exceptions (I know these exceptions must exist) do not change the basic issues. Superior integration is very important, but it is not the Holy Grail. Superior functionality is very important, but it is not the Holy Grail. Both are important but it is still rare that you find a solution that has both superior integration and superior functionality.

Infor ION-izes its Open SOA Strategy – Part 1 » The TEC Blog

Except for the ongoing  vocal marketing campaign entitled “Down with Big ERP” with witty cartoonish billboards and banners adorning major airports, magazines, web sites, and so on  (and which has been acknowledged as successful to me even

These Are the Days of Healthy Growth for an Open-source ERP Provider » The TEC Blog
Provider Filed Under ( FOSS Ecosystem , Industry Observation ) by P.J. Jakovljevic  ( see bio )   These days, amid the austerity, cuts, and general malaise, it is refreshing to hear about the whopping annual growth of a manufacturing-oriented  enterprise resource planning (ERP)  software vendor. Sure, one can discount the magnitude of this upbeat news—this particular vendor is still budding, if you compare it to SAP, Oracle , or Infor —but I welcome this it(and so should any ERP vendor).

OSS OPEN SOURCE FORUM: and open source software (FOSS) did not fade but I changed my focus to another category of enterprise software— business process management (BPM).

Evaluating Strategic Information Technology Investment: An Appraisal of Software Alternatives for Small to Medium Enterprises
The problem of information technology investments particularly concerns small and medium enterprises, as they are much more limited in resources than large enterprises. One of the critical questions is whether to implement an open source or closed source solution.

OSS OPEN SOURCE FORUM: openness. This makes it possible for a third party to see and review the source. This feature is not of great importance to small and medium enterprises (SMEs), unless their core business is application development. Even in these cases, they can view and review the source code by signing a non-disclosure agreement with the software vendor (as Norton did with Microsoft ).
