Session: Doug Dumitru presented a technical
overview of the OpenQM initiative.
Session: Doug Dumitru of
OpenQM discussed an
exciting new development, the OpenMV initiative.
The goal of the OpenMV Initiative
is to open new markets and customers by dramatically
lowering the cost of deploying MultiValue solutions.
The first step in this initiative
is OpenQM. OpenQM is the only commercially usable MultiValue
database currently available under the General Public
License. This means that within the terms of the GPL, OpenQM
can be freely used and distributed.
For commercial users, a list price
of less than one fifth of the price of some other MultiValue
products and no mandatory support contracts makes the total
cost of ownership of an OpenQM database highly attractive.
