Segment Two- The Open For Business Project-

Tonight on the show we will be joined by David E. Jones and Andy Zeneski of The Open for Business Project (also know as OfBiz). OfBiz is an open source enterprise application framework and suite of applications. The framework and architecture are based on standards and popular architecture patterns to make it easier to work with for those experienced with modern enterprise software.

The framework includes many tools to make enterprise application development easier including the Entity Engine, Service Engine, Workflow Engine, Control Servlet & other webapp components, and even an XML Mini-Language to make it easier to implement simple components and tie components together using the other framework tools.

In addition to being open source the project also uses many other open source packages and servces as a demonstration of how these technologies can be applied in real-world applications.

The application components and suite of applications in the project cover many areas of business needs, including: eCommerce (B2C & B2B), Party & Security, Product & Catalog, Order, Marketing, Facility & Inventory, Work Effort, Content & Knowledge, Accounting and others. Some of these applications and components are mature and established while others are still being developed.

David E. Jones is a software developer and believer in the economic viability of open source software and related business models. David is a founder of the Open For Business Project and a Senior Partner at Zeneski Jones & Associates, a company that helps organizations successfully leverage open source solutions. David is from Utah but currently lives in a motorhome so that he can stay with his family as he travels for business.

Andy Zeneski is a founder of the Open For Business Project and a Senior Partner at Zeneski Jones & Associates. Andy comes from a strong ecommerce background and holds IBM certification in WebSphere Commerce Suite. Andy's primary goal is to bring Open For Business to level of its commercial alternatives.
