6 Ways to Promote an Open Enterprise Culture

By Lotte Nielsen | Allgemein , Blog

There are many great publications about the business benefits of an open corporate culture. Moreover, it appears that the trend towards more openness is simply inevitable if you want to hire and retain the best talents out there.

With millennials hitting the workforce, talents increasingly expect more from a company culture, as well as compensation and benefits. That being said, there is a whole world of possibilities between a fully transparent flat start-up where decisions are consensual or an ideal team organization as described in the inspirational blog “Reinventing organizations” by Frederic Laloux, and stuffy big companies with a siloed hierarchy operating on a command-and-control basis.

OPEN-O Promises Open Source NFV and SDN for Telecoms

By Lotte Nielsen | Allgemein , Blog

The Linux Foundation has announced OPEN-O, an open source SDN and NFV project for the telecom community.

The Linux Foundation and industry partners have launched another collaborative project to advance open source software-defined networking (SDN) technology. Called OPEN-Orchestrator (OPEN-O), the initiative will focus on the telecom industry. The Linux Foundation’s OpenDaylight project, which was founded in spring 2013, has already been working for some time to develop an open source SDN and NFV platform than can serve the open source community as a whole. OPEN-O will complement that effort by creating SDN solutions tailored to carrier networks.

Android-x86 and Remix OS Projects Enter Partnership

By Lotte Nielsen | Allgemein , Blog

The leader of the Android-x86 project has just announced that he has entered a partnership with Jide Technology, the creators of the already famous Remix OS.

Remix OS rose to fame back in January when it captured a lot of attention with its interesting adoption of Android-x86, which is a vanilla implementation of the Android operating systems for the PC. Even if it’s still being developed, Remix OS does a lot of things properly, and it managed to cover a lot of ground in a very short amount of time.

Top 4 open source issue tracking tools

By Lotte Nielsen | Allgemein , Blog

Life is full of bugs. No matter how carefully planned, no matter how much time went into design, any project is going to have unforeseen issues when the rubber hits the road in the implementation stage.

And that’s okay. Perhaps the best measure of resiliency for any organization is not how well they handle things when everything is functioning as planned, but rather, how they handle the speed bumps when they come along. A critical tool for any project management workflow, especially in the software development world, is an issue tracker.

Your Intranet is the Backbone of Your Digital Workplace

By Lotte Nielsen | Allgemein , Blog

So the digital workplace is not a fully automated machine that munches humans. It’s more a sophisticated work environment that is fueled by the human brain.

Intranet vs. Digital Workplace

Initially offered as a replacement term for the oldish “intranet”, the “digital workplace” has quickly become a trendy term. After a few years of musing, we now have some very smart definitions. Most of them broaden the scope of the intranet. But nobody is duped—it’s the intranet people who forged that concept. Yet, beyond the buzzword, the term “digital workplace” attempts to capture radical changes in the way people work.

Open source demonstrates the future of work

By Lotte Nielsen | Allgemein , Blog

Evidence suggests that current models of work, in particular a 9-to-5 work week, are not only deleterious to workers‘ physical and mental health, but are also sub-optimally productive.

Fortunately some countries (such as Sweden) are trialing shorter work weeks with some success (although we must take into account that the effects have been observed only over a short amount of time). Working in open source technologies, however, provides the framework for a completely different model of employment. Instead of being pigeonholed into a single, assigned task, open source contributors are given free reign of their responsibilities, allowing them to utilize their time and skills more flexibly.
