How many times in your organization someone proposed migrate some tool from a privative/paid/closed to an open/self hosted one? Every time this questions pops up in a team, many of the concerns are: this is really secure? Is the user experience of this one worth the implementation effort? Will it really be used? Is there something better? This sessions wants to open this discussion and gather some experiences from the participants to map tools and in some cases why they fall short in doing their job. hopefully the discussion and products can be useful to our community and for those that develop some of this tools, so they can use this feedback to improve their products.
Target Audience:
Anyone that works inside an organization and want to migrate to open source / self hosted tools
Desired Outcome:
A map of FLOSS that organizations can consider to use and a map of features we want those tools to have to improve their work
