CanadianCIO Executive Roundtable

Open source for mission critical applications

Why you can’t afford to ignore it.

Public, not-for-profit, health care and education entities are facing a critical shortage of resources and desperately need to find cost savings. The use of open source can result in great cost savings. So why aren’t organizations rushing to open source for their mission critical applications or for virtualization?

As much as these organizations are diligent in their search for savings, there are questions and concerns that may be holding back adoption of open source. Will there be support when you need it — especially for mission critical applications? Are open source systems secure to the point where critical confidential data can be safely protected?

Do the tools for managing open source, open systems, applications development, middleware or virtualization have the same features and ease of use as those found in more expensive competitors?

Join Shane Schick, Editor, CanadianCIO as he moderates a roundtable discussion that includes experts from Red Hat Technologies to get the answers to these and other key questions.
