A sneak peek into the Open Technology Summit at Innovate 2014 and the power of open technologies.

Can you tell me which partners will be at the Open Technology Summit and what role they will play?
Sean Kennedy
We've got Array Networks and SODIUS as sponsors - we've also got presentations from jQuery and PointSource.
John Furrier
That's a great question. The partner ecosystem is very important bc #opensource is key to success and lock in is not the trend customers & partners want
John Furrier
The Red Hat article in the WSJ really brought up the issues of building in the open to foster innovation and progress
Red Hat plays hardball on OpenStack software
Red Hat has embraced OpenStack, a new kind of open-source software. But some Red Hat rivals, partners and customers fear that it is wielding its dominance in Linux to block organizations from using alternative cloud software.
Dave Ings
The Read Hat article would be an excellent question for the OpenStack leaders speaking at the OTS.
