Sirius is launching an Open Source Open Day programme to educate Government, Public Sector and business organisations on how to get the most benefit from using Open Source software within their technology infrastructure.
With the UK in double-dip recession, no let-up in the Government drive for austerity, and the old-fashioned idea of economic growth making a comeback, Western economies have much to learn from the BRICS in utilising Open Source to combine public austerity with private growth. Extensive usage of Open Source is a signature of those economies which are thriving despite the global downturn and contrast markedly with the malaise throughout European economies.
Sirius have helped business and public sector organisations benefit from using Open Source technologies for over a decade and are making that knowledge publicly available to show how, why and where to implement Open Source for maximum impact. Key information in specific technology areas to enable the right technology choices to remain innovative and competitive while drastically cutting cost.
The argument over whether people should be using open source technologies has already been won, now we need to diffuse the fear that exists around where to start or which technologies to look at.
Sirius will be holding a series of open days at their sunny Surrey technology campus. They will focus on specific IT functions and exploring the solutions that are available. Each day will be hosted by experts in the field and will include detailed customer case studies from the customers themselves. Oh yes, and there will be Barbecues by the canal-side...
The first open day is on Friday 1st June and will focus on Open Source Identity Management solutions. If you are interested in attending the event or would like further information about the upcoming programme then please call us on 0870 608 0063 or online at http://www.siriusopensource.com/opendays.
