JP Rangaswami on open source in the enterprise & the future of information
I’ve been following JP Rangaswami on Twitter and his blog ConfusedOfCalcutta and have realised very quickly what great insight he brings. He’s got an impressive background working with Corporates, is a former CIO of investment bank Dresdner Kleinwort Wasserstein and is now CIO of Global Services at BT.
This video of him talking about his Open Source experiences at DrKW is very interesting and shows where Open Source has really established itself i.e. The Enterprise. Interesting also because BT has been busy signing deals/agreements with Microsoft.
He is a very unique CIO in my view who is actually actively being innovative and open minded about new technologies. But new technologies for the sake of it are nothing, you have to know how to deliver business value using the technology, which he seems to have the knack of doing.
