I am delighted to welcome you to the inaugural MsC Malaysia open source


Conference 2009, Malaysia’s largest open source event, here in Kuala
Lumpur from May 31st to June 3rd, 2009.

on behalf of MsC Malaysia, we are proud of bringing you the due focus and
spotlight on the open source segment of the information and communication
technology (ICt) industry. Looking at the extremely challenging times in the
global economy, we believe this conference is timely as it aims to foster
change, innovation and growth in the industry, while emphasizing the theme
“open to Change”.

It is our utmost desire to host this international conference on an annual basis,


here in Kuala Lumpur, for the global open source community. With our three
tracks of Business, Developer and Community, MsC Malaysia open
Conference 2009 has been designed with a content-first approach and has
something unique to offer to everyone.

the discussions and activities held in MsC Malaysia open Conference 2009
will provide exposure and knowledge on the importance of open source
through enhancing competitiveness and freedom of choice in choosing
affordable and workable solutions for all user segments. our sessions will
also provide a platform for conference participants to actively interact, share
and exchange the latest trends and issues on open source platform.
Furthermore, the directions and latest innovations by the many subject matter
experts, thought leaders and industry gurus present at this conference will be
shared with the community, in the true spirit of open source. Participants
will also learn from experts on how open source software can generate
commercial and economic value-add to businesses.

this is a perfect avenue where business participants can learn to be more


creative and resilient in creating opportunities during these challenging times.
on the other hand, developers can tap and grow new ideas and create new
innovative products and services, whilst the community can gain insights and
contribute further refinement of ideas.

Hence, it is my sincere wish that you enjoy the myriad ideas, participate in
the open discussions and at the same time broaden your network during this
four-day conference. All the best!

Yours sincerely,

Dato’ Badlisham Ghazali

FOREWORD
by Director-General MAMPU

the open source software (oss) movement has indeed grown significantly
over the recent years, pervasively used in our daily lives, and increasingly
changing the landscape of the ICt industry. the motivations of interoperability
and freedom of choice are further reinforced by cost benefits; an advantage
that most industries, governments,and communities will appreciate during
challenging times like now, where economic slowdown is seen worldwide.

the effective use of ICt has always been integral to the transformation of the
public sector delivery system. In this respect, the Malaysian Government has
introduced its Public sector oss Master Plan since 2004. since its inception,
the oss Master plan has achieved many milestones, where more than half of
the government agencies have adopted and benefited from its implementation.
Yet, the oss agenda of accelerating the growth the local ICt and the nurturing
of an active oss community is yet to be fully pursued.

the MsC Malaysia open source Conference 2009 has been organized to
supplement the government's oss annual conference, MyGossCon to
provide further exposure on the importance of active collaboration among
the government, the business and the R&D community to sustain the oss
ecosystem. With the theme "open for Change", this event will provide a great
opportunity for all to exchange and refresh views, a possibility to shift
paradigms and achieve better success as an innovating society.

I wish to express my profound appreciation to MDeC for inviting MAMPU to


be an important part of this conference. Wishing all a fruitful and enjoyable
conference. thank you,

Dato' Normah Binti Md. Yusof


Director-General MAMPU
