The April meeting of the Front Range UNIX Users Group will be held at
4:00 P.M. on Tuesday April 25.
Steve Giles will discuss the effect of the open source revolution on
network/systems management and
compare technology in commercial platforms to open source alternatives.
Emphasis is on the four value cornerstones of open source network
management; speed, price,
customizability and technology. Attendees are expected to understand basic
management concepts and relate to the problem of managing networks.
Steve speaks regularly on network management and business topics at
user groups and industry events. Steve's recent focus is on Open Source
network management at OpenNMS.org.

University in 1980, and he joined Hewlett-Packard in 1982. Steve resigned
his post at HP in 1992 to pursue
independent consulting and co-formed Onion Peel Software in 1994. In 1999
he formed N*MANAGE, and launched OpenNMS.org in late 1999.
Steve is a certified OpenView and IT/O consultant and has taught
OpenView Basics and Advanced OpenView to over 2000 students.
