Some Farewell Thoughts

Back to sunny Pisa (far better running weather) with some final thoughts on the engagement of enterprises in the drive towards standards.

Siada El Ramly, Secretary General of the European Software Association, highlighted how cloud computing has the potential to bring major benefits to ISVs, especially in Europe. Key concerns are privacy and security, issues Ian Osborne (OGF-Europe and OGF's VP for Enterprise) says we will still be debating in comes to come.

What remains clear is the need for industry-led standards to address these issues and shine light on the benefits of doing so.
