More France IP Communications Stories

“With world leaders from the U.S., France and the U.K. among others, actively calling for the widespread use of open source, the 2009 Actuate (News - Alert) Annual Open Source Survey continues to chart this movement’s increased adoption and acceptance,” said Nobby Akiha, senior vice president marketing, Actuate Corporation.
The 2009 survey, conducted in June, tracked the adoption of open source software in regions across the globe. It found that Europe “continues to capitalize on its early recognition of open source software’s potential for reducing IT’s cost of ownership and enabling rapid application delivery that allow organizations to hone their competitive edge.”
Each regional report is downloadable at no cost from the link above. They feature an in-depth look at open source adoption trends in the selected region – North America, China, the U.K., France and Germany – as well as highlights for the other four regions surveyed, charts and graphs. All the good stuff.
Actuate founded and co-leads the Eclipse BIRT open source project, a development environment for Rich Information Applications, described by Actuate officials as a place to “develop Web 2.0 applications” for customer satisfaction and loyalty.
