The Linux OS and Open Source software is literally exploding across today's IT landscape. Its effects are being felt at all levels of the enterprise from the back office to the boardroom. If you're a business decision maker or a senior technologist you'd better be ready, because it's not a question of "if", but a question of "when" Linux will be impacting your world.

Linux began its assault on the Enterprise a number of years ago by becoming the standard for Web Intrastructure applications such as web and DNS servers, but is rapidly becoming the OS of choice for mission critical applications such as databases, CRM and ERP systems, and others. It is gaining ground particularly as a platform for interally developed applications build on application servers such as WebShere.

This Webinar will examine the origins of Linux and the Open Source movement, give you an understanding of the range of mission-critical applications that companies are using Linux for and show where you the new opportunties are both today and in the near future.

This webcast will explore:

  • The origins of Linux and Open Source
  • Why Linux is considered 'ready for the enterprise' today
  • What leading edge companies are doing with Linux and what you can learn from them
  • What the big opportunities are for Linux both today and in the near term
