Miguel Valdés-Faura to Share Tips on What Makes a Successful Open Source Business
BonitaSoft, the leader in open source business process management (BPM), today announced that Miguel Valdés-Faura, Chief Executive Officer, has been selected to speak at the O’Reilly Open Source Convention (OSCON) on July 17th in Portland, Oregon. Miguel will share his observations on how to build a successful open source software business based on his experience with his company BonitaSoft, which he founded in 2010 and has since expanded internationally with a customer base of over 350 organizations.
Just five years ago, only a handful of open source vendors beyond Red Hat were thriving. Since then, many questions about the fundamental principles behind those success stories have been answered, including the right mix of market conditions as well as the techniques needed to build a viable business around open source. In his presentation, “The Four Secrets of a Successful Open Source Business,” Miguel Valdés-Faura, co-founder of the Bonita open source business process management (BPM) project, will describe how market analysis, the democratization process, effective community management and a high-volume sales machine are important to making an open source software business successful.
Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder, Miguel leads the charge in BonitaSoft’s mission to democratize BPM by bringing powerful and affordable BPM to organizations and projects of all sizes. Miguel founded the Bonita project in 2001, with the vision that BPM would become mainstream in every company’s IT portfolio. He is a recognized thought leader in business process management and passionate about open source community building.
