May 2012 Newsletter

[OW2 Newsletter - May 2012 - From the OW2 Management Office]

Dear OW2 Members, dear All,

This month we are reaching out to promote our projects and meet with our members. Join us next week in Brazil for an OW2 première: the OW2 Open Source Solutions Brazil Roadshow. The OW2 caravan will stop off in the country's three main business hubs to present some outstanding OW2 projects which include the CompatibleOne open source broker, SpagoBI, eXo Platform and Bonita. Later in May, we will be in Beijing to launch the promotion of the China Open Source Week 2012. COSW'12 will be held this year in Beijing, Nanjing and Wuxi. Sponsors welcome! Download the sponsorship prospectus here

Exciting news on the technology side. First, we are pleased to announce that SugarCRM, the world's leading open source CRM software suite, is now a new project in the OW2 code base. Second, we take this opportunity to announce the availability of the long-awaited CompatibleOne white paper; download it to discover the logical model and core concepts of The Open Source Cloud Broker.

I'd like to finish by welcoming two new members to the OW2 Management Office, George Lu, our new China Local Chapter Coordinator, and Brian Henry, our new Collaborative Project Coordinator. 

Thank you for your on-going support,

Cedric Thomas

PS: Project leaders: Do not forget to use the OW2 Forge to tell everybody about your project updates. News will appear on the OW2 forge, our home page and in this newsletter
