      CTOSummit: A unique event that discusses Open Source related business
      opportunities

      Dear Sir/Madam,

      What's happening in the Open Source space? Is this growth for real or
      is it just another bubble? Are Indian IT firms benefiting from this
      phenomenon too? How? Why?

      These questions will be answered at the CTOSummit happening on the
      12th of February 08, at The Taj Westend.

      Sample of speakers at the CTOSummit: Brian Behlendorf, Co-founder
      Apache and Collabnet; David Axmark, Co-founder, MySQL; Klaus Knopper,
      Co-founder, Knoppix. Speakers from Novell, Ingres, TCS, Satyam, Intel,
      Microsoft, and many more IT firm, will be participating in the
      discussion at the CTOSummit.

      Inspired from the Open Source Business Conference (OSBC), which is an
      annual event in the US, the CTOSummit should be an excellent
      opportunity for you to discover the business and economics of open
      source, interact with global and Indian entrepreneurs who have been
      successful in this arena, and network with the who's who of the IT
      industry.

      The Background
      CTOSummit is one of the events being organised within the Open Source
      India Week (OSIW), which was earlier known as LinuxAsia. Both,
      CTOSummit and OSIW are being organised by the EFY Group--publishers of
      magazines like Electronics For You and LINUX For You. The earlier four
      LinuxAsia were held only in Delhi, but this year the event has
      expanded into three cities: Bangalore, Mumbai and Delhi.

      Few facts related to the business side of Open Source:
      · MySQL just got bought by Sun Microsystems for UDS$ 1 Billion.

      · Ingres and SugarCRM are expected to go IPO this year, and despite
      being open source firms, they are the darling amongst tech investors
      and analysts.

      · Indian IT giants, like Satyam and TCS, have started releasing open
      source projects.

      · Many SME-IT firms have witnessed growth of over 100-percent in the
      last three to four years, while working in the Linux/Open Source space.

      The Specifics:
      Date: 12th February '08, 10 am to 6 pm
      Venue: The Taj Westend, Banglore
      Deadline for registration: 7th February '08
      Entry Fee: Rs 5,000 (including service tax 12.36%)
