Open Source Business Conference

Open Source Software (OSS) is rapidly coming to dominate certain areas of IT. Despite this advance, few beyond hardware vendors have developed solid models for leveraging OSS to boost margins or revenues. This inability to monetize OSS is perhaps its greatest inhibitor to thriving beyond the commodity server. The Open Source Business Conference (OSBC) is the first forum to bring together established technology vendors, startups, open source community members and enterprise IT users/customers to jointly explore new oppotunities for OSS deployment and how to capitalize on them.
