SYS-CON Radio Interviews Jon Prial, IBM

LinuxWorld Conference & Expo 2004 San Francisco

SYS-CON Radio interviews IBM's Jon Prial, VP of Marketing and Strategy, DB2 Information Management, live at the LinuxWorld Conference & Expo 2004 in San Francisco about this week's headline-making IBM Cloudscape announcement.

Prial sets the announcement about open-sourcing Cloudscape in the context of IBM's historic commitment to open source, and his articulate passion exemplifies very well in and of itself why Big Blue has been so successful in engaging the community. He is informed, up-front, and a persuasive advocate of the win-win co-existence of zero-cost code with paid-for service maintenance services.
