Open Source

An open source city takes shape: Open, online tools and data.  The grand vision for the open data portal has two components, ESRI and a to-be determined solution similar to Socrata. They both play a critical role housing the available data and making it easier-to-consume by end users.  The ESRI geoportal server is an open source product that enables discovery, use, and publishing of metadata for geospatial resources.

Open Cloud Roundup: Open Source Dominates Private, Hybrid Enterprise Clouds

The open source cloud made waves in the news this week with the results of a RightScale study that claims widespread adoption among enterprises of open source cloud computing services. VMWare and IBM showed their agreement by announcing plans to expand their open source cloud investments.

Open source: Leading the way for big data applications

According to the research firm Wikibon, the big data market is on the verge of a growth spurt that will hit $50 billion worldwide within the next five years. Data volumes are growing to the point where companies are being forced to scale their infrastructure, and the traditional “scale up” technologies, legacy systems and licensing models are simply not working. From its onset, open source technology has been at the forefront of massive data management. Today, open source provides the most effective way to address such a large-scale problem and get the job done faster and more accurately at a fraction of the price of alternative solutions.
