Trends
  • SHIFT FROM RIGID, PROPRIETARY TO FLEXIBLE
  • All industries have embraced IT as necessary
    business infrastructure
  • All industries are shifting from unconnected,
    rigid systems with limited capabilities and high
    costs to flexible, scalable, connected systems
  • This need for modular and scalable software is
    driving the cost and the development of software
    in new directions.
  • The fastest growing aspect of the computing
    environment is within the area we call Open
    Technology

22
Trends
  • ALL CONTINENTS,
  • ALL MAJOR INDUSTRIES
  • Linux is deployed across all continents and
    embraced by governments around the world. (IDC)
  • Linux is deployed across major industries
    Retail, Government, Telco, Financial services,
    Life Sciences, Oil/gas and energy,
    University/academic.
  • Early adoption has given way to mainstream
    adoption for business/enterprise and
    scientific/technical applications.(IDC)
  • Linux is changing the world. (IDC)

23

    Linux Open Source leaders
  • Accelerating the worldwide growth adoption of
    Linux in the Enterprise
  • Growing importance of Linux in embedded devices

    --13 states growing, including the Oregon Dept.
    of Trans. (ODOT)
  • Portland State University (PSU)
  • Linux Open Source are rapidly permeating the
    Computer Science Dept.s curriculum.

Actions Recommendations
27
Findings
  • There is an enormous opportunity in Oregon
  • It is part of an International opportunity
  • We must move boldly
  • We must present a coordinated image
  • We must be Open economically and culturally as
    well as technologically

28
Recommendation 1
We have assets here that are unsurpassed, yet we
have not asserted the leadership. We have the
resources and less of the urgency. We have to
change that. Oregons Open Technology Leaders
  • State should immediately work to develop the
    Open Technology cluster and focus its
    collaborative efforts and this work will be
    ongoing
  • Actions
  • Cluster Coordinator Funding

29
Recommendation 3
We need better-trained people coming out of
higher ed in this state. I cannot get the
graduates with diverse computer science skills,
especially software development. Dan Frye VP
Linux Technology, IBM
  • Oregon Universities MUST Teach Linux and Open
    Source Software
  • Actions
  • Industry/School workgroup

30
Recommendation 6
We have a lead in Open Source for government and
there are opportunities for every school,
organization and business that wants to move
quickly, innovatively and collaboratively. Scott
Kveton OSU OSL
  • Government Can Accelerate Open Technology
  • Actions
  • Government pilots
  • GOSCON

31
Summary
  • OSUs Open Source Lab is focal point for
    collaboration and innovation
  • Density of commercial open source activity
    strengthens the community and challenges
    education to support training and workforce
  • The State has gained a resource to help lead a
    proof of concept for the viability of Open Source
    methodology for enterprise projects.
