Open source enthusiasts often wonder on how is Microsoft related to open source technology. Well, be at Open Source India to get your answer. Microsoft is arranging a special hands-on event on how it interoperates with open source software, a session which is must-attend for people working on interoperability.

Rahul Chopra, editor, Open Source For You, shared, “Open Source India 2014 attempts to provide an apt platform to facilitate the much-needed discussion between the community and the industry. Industry giants from companies like HP, Microsoft, Oracle, Huawei Technologies, Dell and Zimbra will be present at the event to share about the latest and greatest in the world of open source technology. We are also introducing a full track of IT implementation success stories where the CIOs and IT heads will talk about their successful open source technology deployments in their companies and how have they benefited from that. The idea is to clear the doubts in the minds of those who think that their businesses could be at risk if they resorted to open source technology. Going by the adage that seeing is believing, we think that these practical examples will help more and more companies to contemplate open source technology as a strong business model.”
