\[OW2 Newsletter - April 2013 - From the OW2 Management Office\]

Dear OW2 Members, dear All,

OW2 was at CeBIT earlier in March to unveil CHOReOS and launch the OW2 Future Internet Software and services initiative (FISSi). At CeBIT, future technology and research projects are displayed next to pragmatic ready-to-go business solutions. An event like no other, CeBIT is the largest ICT exhibition and conference in the world. The event is so big that only the leadersin the industry have their own booths. Most other companies join forces to exhibit under the patronage of a reseller or a government agency, for instance.

The world of open source is somewhat similar with a very small number of large companies and a large number of small companies, development teams and projects that need to unite to have a chance to be heard. Take, for instance, industry alliances such as the Open Source Business Alliance in Germany and the Systematic GTLL in France, or communities such as OW2, Eclipse, Apache and OpenStack. Sometimes, industry alliances and communities seem to overlap when, for example, they help companies join forces to be present at CeBIT, but most of the time, however, they differ. Industry alliances essentially share business concerns and interests and lobby their governments. Communities have more than business in common; they share a sense of direction, a governance and a code base, and they are global. Communities and industry alliances fulfill different roles; they are complementary. The open source world needs both.

As for the latest news, we have announced the results of the 2013 OW2 election. The new board members are listed here; they will elect their chairperson on April 19. In the meantime the OW2 General Assembly will be held on April 10. The Management Office is still interviewing candidates for the SysAdmin job at OW2; if you are interested, details here. On the technology side, congratulations to DocDoku on its upgrade to mature project status by the Technology Council!

Thanking you for your on-going support,

Cedric Thomas

\[OW2 Newsletter - May 2013 - From the OW2 Management Office\]

Dear OW2 Members, dear All,

The OW2 board of directors has a new chairperson. I'm pleased to start our newsletter by announcing that Gabriele Ruffatti was elected chairman of the board of OW2 at the board meeting on April 19. Gabriele is Technical Director at OW2 founding-member Engineering Group and has been an OW2 board member since the beginning of our community. Congratulations Gabriele!

We had questions about the positioning of OW2 relative to OpenStack. I've always said that OW2 and OpenStack are not rivals; they are complementary: the very same day OpenStack was announced, OW2 issued a support press release. Last month, we held a series of face-to-face meetings with executives and board members from the foundation that confirmed this complementarity. While OpenStack focuses on the compute-storage-network technologies which, much like the Linux operating system, will be productized in commercial  distributions, the OW2 ecosystem adds value to the IaaS ecosystem by focusing on the technologies that will enable the implementation of cloud-oriented information systems and applications. We have a window of opportunity of two or three years to foster this complementarity.

After five years of dedication as OW2 CTO, Alexandre Lefebvre now feels it is time for a change. No doubt we will be seeing him again! On behalf of all of us who had the pleasure to work with Alex, I want to express OW2's gratitude and wish him all the best for the future. I am now delighted to introduce Xiaolong Kong, seconded to OW2 by Strategic Member France Telecom Orange. A highly qualified software developer and project manager, Xiaolong is now the new CTO of OW2. Please welcome Xiaolong!

Finally, it is a pleasure to announce that Ubidreams has joined the OW2 community as a Corporate Member. Ubidreams is the company behind the Nanoko project, a great collection of tools to assist with developing robust, modern crossmedia web applications.

Thank you for your contributions and on-going support,

Cedric Thomas
