Dallas, TX (PRWEB) June 6, 2005
Thomas Communications, Inc., publisher of Business Integration Journal and z/Journal, today announced the premiere issue of Enterprise Open Source Journal, the first magazine to inform CIOs, IT executives, and IT staff of open source issues and related topics such as open standards and open systems. Enterprise Open Source Journal takes a broad view of open source to accommodate the various meanings of the term since todayÂs enterprises are comprised of IT ecosystems containing a large variety of heterogeneous elements that must work together to solve business challenges. Therefore, the mission of Enterprise Open Source Journal is to present high-quality content that will inform and educate readers on issues unique to the use of open source within these enterprises such as licensing, security, integration, compatibility, evaluation, support, ROI, liability, indemnification, and user experiences.
The premiere issue of Enterprise Open Source Journal contains an outstanding line-up of articles written by many of todayÂs leading authorities in the world of open source. Some of the articles appearing in the premiere issue include: Top-Five Myths of Open Source by Bernard Golden; Balancing Software Developer Productivity Against Copyright Infringement Risks by John Koenig; How Open Source Development Principles Lead to More Effective Software Reuse by Brian Behlendorf; The Challenges and Opportunities of Building a Business in Open Source by Marc Fleury; The Future of Open Source Grid Computing in the Enterprise by Peter Yared; and many others.
Because open source is a worldwide phenomenon, Enterprise Open Source Journal is free to IT professionals around the world. Subscribers within the United States can choose to receive either the printed or digital version (both versions are identical) of the magazine. International subscribers will receive the digital edition thereby eliminating mailing delivery delays and the substantial subscription prices these subscribers must typically pay.
ÂWe invite IT professionals everywhere to subscribe to Enterprise Open Source Journal, and consider contributing an article for publication consideration,Â said Bob Thomas, CEO of Thomas Communications. ÂOnce readers review the premiere issue of Enterprise Open Source Journal, we believe they will quickly notice the high-quality of the articles, and that most of our content is contributed by subject matter experts who have many years of experience. All we ask is for everyone to read the premiere issue and see for themselves.Â
