SAP’s Open Source Summit 2009

SAP AG, the world’s third largest software vendor, held its first (mostly internal) open source summit on Nov 11-12. Prof. Riehle as an invited speaker presented his analysis of “why open source is hard for closed source vendors.” (The linked to presentation is a generic one without anything specific to SAP.) Prof. Riehle joined the SAP-internal after-summit workshop on Nov 13 to consult to and further discuss SAP’s open source strategy.
