Date: 16th of September 2016 // 10am (CEST)

Summary: With more than 360 IoT platforms available, IoT providers and new services are overwhelmed with choices:  Which platform should I choose? Will it survive the next 3-5 years? Which added costs are to expect?

Open Source Software (OSS) approach provides an alternative to more and more decision makers. But why? And what is behind it?

  • Why do more and more organisations chose OSS to build or share their solutions?
  • What are the myths, what are the facts, what are the hoaxes on OSS?
  • What are the criteria used by an organisation to adopt or implement an OSS solution?
  • What kind of business model can be built if a part or all the code is open sourced? What kind of license should be adopted?

During this seminar we will answer to these questions in the context of the IoT.
