2010 - From the OW2 Management Office &nbsp;</font></p>
<div align="left">Dear OW2 Members, Dear All,<br>
</div>
<p align="left">Energizing the community is our first
strategic objective. OW2 has a great code base, but are we a community?
Do we all have this sense of belonging that defines a community? What
makes you proud of OW2? How can we make OW2 a community that inspires
commitment? Perhaps we each have our own answer.<br>
<br>
What is certain is that, without the mythical ROI, no one will feel
compelled to invest time, effort and emotion in OW2. How do you measure
your ROI in OW2? Here are some clues: </p>
<p align="left">- First, there is of course the standard
monetary payback: we are here to help you save money on one hand and to
make some on the other. If you can identify how much money you save or
make thanks to OW2, you're good.<br>

<p align="left">- Second, there is the technology: we have a great pool of technologies
and companies at OW2 and close interactions with other members will
tell you where you stand regarding the state of the art. How much is
this technology compass worth? <br>

<p align="left">- Third, there is the "we are changing the world" feeling: because,
yes, we are changing the world, and there are not many open source code
bases like ours. World class software you are free to use and
contribute to... What's the price of being able to make your own
technology decisions?</p>
<p align="left">Let's keep the conversation going at
Solutions Linux where several members will show their latest demos:
BonitaSoft, Bull, Engineering, INRIA, JasperSoft, Petals Link, Talend
and Xwiki. </p>
<p align="left">This week-end starts the year of the Tiger
in China; may OW2 be as agile and strong as a Tiger!&nbsp;</p>
<p align="center">&nbsp;Gong He Xin Xi!&nbsp; &#24685;&#36154;&#26032;&#31143; </p>
<p align="left">Thank you for your support.&nbsp;</p>
