This Summit will address ways to optimize open source utilization and community involvement in this new playing field.

"Perspecta, along with other returning sponsors such as DSS, Inc., are industry-leading examples of successful open source innovation and collaboration. They bring a wealth of expertise to our event, and we are looking forward to another highly collaborative and interactive conference."
