Implementing Open Technologies in Defense Suppliers - Case Studies
Moderator: Stu Lewin, Software Architect & OSS Evangelist, BAE Systems, Inc.
The panel opens up to the audience DoD contractor experiences with establishing a company policy on open source, and their perspectives on benefits, cultural resistance, and implementation challenges. The goal of the panel is to share experiences and defense industry best practices. The panel will consist of contractors, a vendor to share experiences based on working with Industry for best practices, and a legal perspective on policy and implementation. Defense contractors share their ‘war stories’, experiences, lessons learned – what worked, and what didn’t.

Open Architecture - DoD Access to Innovation
Moderator: Nick Guertin, Deputy Director for Open Architecture, PEO IWS, US Navy
The panel discusses how the Defense Agencies and Military Services approach open architecture. In particular it will focus on issues of intellectual property, data rights and preserving DoD access to innovation. It also addresses the question of how OA will influence and impact the acquisition of information tools and capabilities, and looks ahead to what the community can expect.
