OpenGeo's Eddie Pickle to Speak at Open Analytics Summit

Presentation on The Value of Commercial Open Source Software

New York, New York, March 21, 2013Eddie Pickle, CEO of OpenGeo is scheduled to speak at the Open Analytics DC Summit on March 25th. Mr. Pickle's presentation, entitled "The Value of Open Source Software" will discus how open source software offers substantial value to enterprises. Mr. Pickle will highlight the benefits that open source provides in terms of control, choice, and functionality – as well as cost – and will describe how those benefits can dramatically improve enterprise software deployments.

Mr. Pickle brings a wealth of knowledge to the summit. As CEO of OpenGeo, he has overseen the development of a number of leading open source geospatial technologies and has brought commercial open source to the forefront of the geospatial software industry. Mr. Pickle, who brings 25 years of experience in geospatial solutions with him, has noted the increase in interest and awareness for commercially supported open source: "Enterprises and government agencies need to deploy more (and better) geospatial web services, but are faced with shrinking budgets. Increasingly they are turning to companies like OpenGeo for commercially supported open source software, which deliver superior value while simultaneously increasing the reach and functionality of enterprise systems, all while controlling costs."

Prior to joining OpenGeo Mr. Pickle was the Chief Operating Officer of IONIC Enterprise, an industry leader in developing OGC standards-based software. He also served as Executive Vice President of Sales and Client Service at Claritas, now a part of AC Nielsen, where he directed geospatial applications for enterprises worldwide.

The Open Analytics Summit in Washington DC presents a great opportunity to learn about everything open source and data analytics. Next week 200 data scientists, CTOs, CIOs, data analysts, engineers, programmers, developers, enterprise architects, product managers, and program managers will join industry experts and government executives talk about open source technologies, big data, data analytics and much more.
