"GOSCON always provides some interesting use cases for
open source by the public sector, and while we might not associate
public service with space travel, NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory
in Pasadena presented on how integral open source BI software from
Jaspersoft was integral to the Phoenix Rover Mission. JPL Lead
Engineer Terry Himes told attendees how he and his team have
navigated the procurement process while Jaspersoft Vice President
Nick Halsey went over what his open source company has done to
accommodate its government customers, which are accounting for
significant revenue. Halsey stressed that Jaspersoft's federal GSA
Schedule listing and federal Section 508 accessibility compliance,
announced at the conference, were examples of where the vendor was
able to 'bridge gaps' in compliance that the development community
would not have otherwise addressed."
