While Android and open source software not-so-quietly revolutionized the mobile industry, Enterprise IT organizations have taken notice. “The consumerization of IT” and ubiquity of mobile devices are forcing a transformation of Enterprise IT infrastructures, something that Geoffrey Moore refers to as “Systems of Record” and “Systems of Engagement.” These new infrastructures will be built largely with open source components. But whether developing a new device or new IT infrastructure, development with open source software is not business as usual. Choosing and modifying components from external sources, integrating with proprietary code, evaluating licenses and community viability, etc., require new processes for choosing components and new ways of providing control and visibility.

In this presentation Peter Vescuso will discuss the issues of OEM development with Android and open source, where and how it impacts Enterprise IT, and for both how to provide the control and visibility required by management while giving developers the freedom they need to create and innovate.
