Even businesses claiming to prefer the managerial comfort of dealing with proprietary vendors have to recognize they deploy open source software. The question is no longer whether companies use it or not, but more how they do it.</p> <p> Some are just opportunists who integrate OSS with no strategy while others claim to be long-term open source fans but, in fact, remain mere consumers because they do no more than follow decisions made by development teams over which they have no influence. And then there are those companies that actively participate or support the active participation of their employees in open source communities and projects. These are the organizations that achieve the most benefits from OSS, are the most attractive to talented developers, and are the most agile and innovative in their use of technologies. So, are you a consumer or a participant?</p> <p> I am pleased to welcome our new member, <a href="http://newsletter.ow2.org/t/r-l-fmlrtl-l-j/" style="color:#0099CC;text-decoration:none;" >OpenIO</a>, a young start-up which develops, markets and supports a cutting edge open source technology in ultra-scalable object storage software.</p> <p> Sponsoring opportunities!
