|January 23, 2013||Join us for a Webinar: Software Compliance Best Practices for Embedded Linux and Android Solutions: When Hope is Not a Strategy|
A decade ago embedded device software was considered more of a hardware enabler then a product itself. Today however, embedded software has evolved to become a product differentiator and revenue generator. Furthermore, the dependency on open source software is growing rapidly. The risk associated with the increased distribution of embedded software products is typically greater compared to more traditional software solutions. Therefore, distributors of embedded software need to raise the bar by deploying additional compliance review measures. We present eight software compliance best practices every device distributor should consider when hope is not part of the strategy.

Palamida is proud to be a silver sponsor of the Open Source Business Conference (OSBC)
Cloud, Data, Mobile and Open Source: It Stars Here
Even as Open Source has gone mainstream, its influence on cloud computing, mobile technology, and Big Data is still in its infancy. Businesses are increasingly data-driven, as the Internet, cloud strategies, social media and mobile technologies have made it possible and imperative to collect massive quantities of data on customers, competitors, and more. Making sense of all that data, analyzing it in real time and using it wisely, all while deploying data-rich applications -- leans heavily on both open-source software--like Cassandra, Hadoop, OpenStack, jQuery, and more—as well as the very principles of open-source development.
OSBC 2012 offers the chance to connect with the developers, users and companies behind the most significant open-source, mobile and cloud technologies, including HTML5 frameworks like jQuery and SproutCore, NoSQL databases like Mongo, Big Data technologies like Hadoop and Cassandra, and cloud platforms like OpenStack and Cloud Foundry. You'll also learn key strategies so that you can make your business more effectively data-driven. Nowhere else will you hear such a comprehensive perspective on the open source industry. The conference program features content-rich sessions from visionary thought-leaders and industry executives on how open source technology is being used and what the implications are from a business perspective.

Palamida is proud to sponsor TechAmerica Technology & IP Event: You Have Open Source. Now What?
Dec 08, 2011 7:30 AM - 10:00 AM PT | Oregon Zoo Portland, OR
A few years ago, the conventional wisdom among companies was either to ride the open source wave or to avoid open source software at all costs. Now, the choice to avoid open source software is gone. Whether you are a hardware company or a software company, you have open source. It’s in your servers, it’s in your phone system, and it is almost certainly in your products whether they are hardware or software. The open source in your phone system is probably a great idea. The open source in your products, on the other hand, may not be. What should you do?
Join three industry experts who will discuss best practices you can bring to bear in order to reap the benefits of open source while avoiding the pitfalls. They will discuss what open source software is, how it found its way into your products, and what its advantages and disadvantages might be.
You will learn:
Mark Visnick is a practicing attorney and senior consultant with Johnson-Laird, Inc, where he specializes in forensic software analysis for litigation and software due diligence for mergers, acquisitions, and in-bound licensing deals. Marc will explain what open source is, what compliance entails, and where the risks lie.
Chris Perez is a software engineer and former engineering manager at Tektronix. Chris will provide practical advice about how technology companies can manage open source obligations in a way that is consistent with company values and mindful of limited resources.
Jeff Luszcz is the founder and VP of Services and Support at Palamida, where he leads the professional services team responsible for open source compliance audits. Jeff will discuss how Palamida helps companies manage open source software at all stages of their product lifecycles.

Computing in the 21st century is moving to the cloud. Web services, mobile applications, and virtualization have changed how we think about software. What does this mean to open source software licensing -- a model built on conventional notions of distribution?

Will clouds be the death of free software? Or vice versa? Join us for an in-depth, interactive session on these timely and relevant issues.
