KeynoteTitle: Open Source at the Premium Pension Authority of Sweden (PPM)
PPM is supporting six million pension savers, each with a personal pension fund portofolio, using an IT-platform based on a mix of Open Source and proprietary software.
The key message for the Open Source Workshop 2009 is that Open Source has passed its early stages and is now reliable, stable and supported enough for mission critical applications, including systems handling pension savings worth 30 billion Euros.
Lars Wahlund is IT architect at PPM. Having been in the IT industry for 30+ years he has participated in at least three generations of computing, from mainframes via personal computers to today's world of virtual server farms with Linux, MySQL, JBoss and other Open Source software. Lars has been working with PPM for 10 years and worked before that as an IT consultant for 20 years.
