Jacques Davy is in charge of the Open Source governance for the Orange group since 2011. He contributed at the integration of the Open Source into the technical strategy of the group and as well as into the products and services development processes. Previously, he was development program manager in Orange Labs for middleware and infrastructure projects in which Open Source takes an importance place. Before, he held several positions in the development of services, middleware and operating systems in France Telecom and other French companies.

Relying on the testimony of these companies, the second panel will share, compare and discuss these practices and will measure the key role played by the industries for better implementation of open source.
