Open Innovation Portal by SUN Micro

Tuesday, February 24, 2009

Well most of you might be aware of open source strategy which is followed by some of the big giants like sun. Well i am a hardcore fan of microsoft rather i would say the concept of open source is an awesome thing which might take the technoology to next level, because it combines the brains of many intelligent chaps accross the world in order to develop the technology.

The Open Source Definition

The Open Source Definition is used by the Open Source Initiative to determine whether or not a software license can be considered open source. The definition was based on the Debian Free Software Guidelines, written and adapted primarily by Bruce Perens

Sun Microsystems has launched what it claims to be the first ever Open Innovation Portal at the Centre for Excellence in E-governance, Department of Management Studies, IIT Delhi with JNU and Knowledge Commons as collaborators.

This is place where society can share their ideas towards innovation. And this can help the transition the economy into innovation economy.

In this portal people coming from diversified backgrounds like Scientific community, student community and from all walks of life to publish their innovations with no IPR encumbrances.

According to sources a person called Krishnakant Mane, a visually challenged computer scientist, entered the first idea into the portal last day. He suggested that he want to create a system that can help visually challenged to have better access to print media. Where as Krishankanth used ORCA screen which was introduced by SUN help the differently abled people to access computers

Speaking at the inauguration, Mr. Joe Hartley, VP of Global Education, Government, and Healthcare, Sun Microsystems said, “Sun knows that communities drive innovation. The Innovation Portal therefore allows for collaboration between members of a society to foster innovation. This is in line with Sun’s vision of the Participation Age where Sun believes the world has entered a new era where dramatically lowered barriers to entry, plummeting device prices and near-universal connectivity are driving a new round of network participation.”

I would really suggest you guys please visit that portal and let me know the feedback.
