Openness as a strategic advantage in modern geospatial
06-28, 11:00–11:30 (Europe/Tirane), UBT C / N109 - Second Floor

In the last decade, 5 complementary assets have intersected, creating a series of new capabilities for our community. Modern geospatial did not exist even five years ago, and openness - the combination of open standards, open data all glued together with open source code is a key contributing factor.

This talk will present the case for openness being a competitive advantage for a modern, innovative technology company. We will discuss why we have been right all along, and why we will end up being even righter in the future. If you want a solid dose of confirmation bias, this is the talk for you!
