A Provider Perspective on Mission-Critical Open Source Software Adoption by Organizations

Pr Placide Poba-NzaouProfessor of Information Systems and Human Resources Management at Université du Québec à Montréal (UQÀM) Placide Poba-Nzaou will introduce the OpenERP event of the year in Canada next week by providing an overview of his latest research to be published and presented at the 19th Americas Conference on Information Systems in Chicago (AMCIS 2013): “Barriers to Mission-Critical Open Source Software Adoption by Organizations: A Provider Perspective”.

Mission critical Open Source Software (OSS) adoption by organizations is relatively new and the research field related to the issue is new as well. The research team used the Delphi method to investigate barriers to mission-critical OSS adoption as perceived by two panels of experienced providers in France (n= 18) and in Quebec, Canada (n= 11). On average, panelists had 15 years of experience in the software industry including 9 years with open source software. By comparing the barriers selected by each group, zones of concordance and discordance were identified. Finally, the open source adoption literature is complemented by adding new insights to the existing body of knowledge dominated by client perspective alone.

Starting at 1:00 PM this scientific presentation will be followed by a panel discussion with Pr Poba-Nzaou, Marc Laporte (COO of OpenERP) and Christophe Villemer (CEO of Savoir-faire Linux) starting the actual OpenERP Business Model and Partnership Program seminar. Space is limited so please book your seat promptly in order to attend this great event of shared learning and business networking around Open Source Enterprise Resource Planning.
