About this talk

Open source software has largely influenced the world we’re living in today. It is all around us in our everyday life, from smartphones and laptops to smart devices and cars. Since open source was introduced a few decades ago, the main aim behind it was to enable users to operate, copy, share, study, change, and improve this software. Today, over 85% of organisations have an open source mandate to increase agility and flexibility. It has enabled enterprises to further innovate while cutting down costs. And as most of the cloud native ecosystem consists of open source components, companies who consume open source efficiently are considered to be better positioned for the future. Join our first "in Arabic" webinar to learn more about open source and how it has helped evolve the world around us, and how to leverage open source softwares to better position yourself for the future.
