Workshop Title:  Why should you embrace Open Source?

Chaired By: Steve Bradshaw with Steve Cast, Andy Youens, Dr Herb Daly & David Spurway

Come to this lively topical debate, chaired by our own Technical Director Steve Bradshaw, to hear some of the arguments for and against embracing Open Source.  

Our Marketing Director, Steve Cast, will play “devil’s advocate” and  propose the motion that Open Source is too much of a risk to consider for strategic business use.  Andy Youens, supported by Dr Herb Daly and Dave Spurway, will argue that it is both secure and fit for purpose, if configured correctly.   There will be an opportunity to ask your Open Source questions and to join in the debate.  If you have a question you’d like to ask then you can submit this before the session to Steve.Bradshaw@rowtonit.com or bring your questions along on the day.  We will close the session with a vote to gauge how many of you are using or planning to use Open Source in your IT strategy and if today’s debate has influenced you either way.
