\[OW2 Newsletter - October 2009 - From the OW2 Management Office] 

Dear OW2 Members, Dear All,

We've got some important this month: during the Open World Forum last week, we announced our plan to merge with our friends at the Open Solutions Alliance in North America.

This joining of forces is motivated by the strong complementarity between OSA and OW2 as illustrated by the expression "two puzzle pieces waiting to be put together", the most repeated comment in the press. Indeed, while OW2's strengths lie in its governance, technical infrastructure, broad code base focusing on open source infrastructure software and its global membership from Europe, China and Brazil, OSA's strengths are in marketing, commercial open source, its focus on open source applications and technology integration, and its strong North-American membership.

We are creating a unique global open source organization with prominent members in Europe, China, Brazil and North America dedicated to supporting research, development, distribution, and adoption of open source software at all levels of information systems. More .

The OW2 programming contest is now over. A total of 17 teams signed up to compete on the 21 programming topics put forward by OW2 project leaders and six of them made it to the finals. Congratulations to the winners, a team from Beihang University (Beijing, China) who developed a remarkable Web 2.0 BPM editor for the OW2 Orchestra project. More .

Thank you for your on-going support,


Cedric Thomas
