Open Technology: Discover the promise. ‘Open technologies present a wealth of opportunities for educators. By supplying software and hardware that is interoperable and available with few or no licensing restrictions, open technology can enable development of collaborative learning environments within schools and higher education institutions around the world. IBM is committed to supporting open technologies by contributing source code, open standards specifications and intellectual property. Our business and technical consultants can assist educators with adopting open technologies, such as LinuxÂ® and Sakaiâ„¢. Our Web services are developed within a service-oriented architecture and our software products are based on open standards. We also work closely with our IBM Business Partners to apply open technology to the specific needs of schools and universities.’
