A few years ago I had the opportunity to build an open source program office from scratch at Twitter. There's really no book on how to build an open source office so there were a lot of lessons learned from that experience and deserve to be shared.

Now that it has become mainstream a growing number of companies and public bodies claim to have a stake in open source. Do we still need open, source organizations and foundations? Are they joining the ranks of endangered species? Participants in the panel will share with the audience their perspectives on a) the future of open source foundations and their usefulness in an evolving IT industry and b) the role they can play in Europe in a context increasingly structured by publicly-driven collaborative innovation initiatives (H2020, ECP, FI-PPP, etc.).

What impact PRISM will have on open source :
The Snowden affair has led many to realize that software in general cannot be trusted. Software has bugs, it may also has vulnerabilities, planted by some spy agency. Free Software is not just one way to restore confidence, it's the only way.
How Innovation has changed hands :
Innovation in IT used to come from major software vendors, the like of IBM or Microsoft. Now it's mostly coming from major software consumers, be they Facebook or Twitter. To them, IT is an expense, not a business. They have an interest in making IT cheaper by feeding open source with the downfalls of their innovation. This is a change of paradigm in innovation.

The Linux-based Android OS was designed specifically for phones and tablets but companies have increasingly been using, or considering using it, in other embedded products in recent years. Because of its custom design, it makes the most sense as an embedded operating system in connected devices that have a user interface, and most often, a touch screen.
The automotive industry, where Android has been a staple of in-vehicle-infotainment systems, has so far seen the most prolific use. But that’s about to change.
Companies that have been experimenting with embedded Android for the past two to three years will finally soon begin releasing their products.
Android build systems have also greatly improved in that time period, making it easier and thus more likely for engineers to make the switch. And vendors have become more skilled at engineering and porting embedded Android service.

Buyers are now key players in the choices made by businesses and public structures in all areas of procurement, including IT. One of their important missions is to make immediate gains in procurement spending. While it is simple to negotiate and expose a cost reduction on a proprietary license, it's far more complex to prove purchasing efficiency when you do a paradigm shift like the transition to Open Source (licence vs. service). How do CIOs and buyers agree on these choices? Should there be a special purchase approach and a different dialog with CIOs for Free Software?
