Paris Open Source Summit, the first European Free and Open source event, is the product of two emblematic events in this domain, the Solutions Linux event and the Open World Forum.
The ambition of this event is to exhibit the technological innovations, the reality and the economic dynamism of its solutions as well as the societal impacts of this digital sector. Paris Open Source Summit is a means to tell the international community about the numerous contributions of the Free and Open Source within the current digital revolutions and the future ones. This event will also present the success stories of various companies using free and open source technology, the different communities involved and the strong support of public authorities (State, Region, City…).
3 main axes will be highlighted in 2017:
“Enabling digital everywhere”
In addition to the main subjects that will be widely represented, such as Devops, Big Data, IoT, AI and digital as a whole, all massively powered by Open Source, the 2017 edition will honor the diffusion Of Open Source with:
– End-user oriented solutions (business applications, workstations, office automation, …). Starting from the observation that “Open Source is Everywhere” (synthesis of the comments gathered during the Open CIO Summit and in many media), POSS 2017 wishes to deepen this idea, focusing on the Devops, the cloud , The framework, and so on the tools dedicated to the technical profiles for which this is proven, but also on end-user solutions where Open Source still plays the role of challenger.
– International, with a strong focus on Francophonie (the International Organization of La Francophonie is in this capacity a member of the program committee) and on our relations with Africa and Europe.
– The business, with numerous feedback from users and contributors, from global open source strategies such as the Société Générale Group, to the implementation of innovative solutions or dedicated to end users, to the choice of economic models or to the valorization of Research and development Open Source.
