In the last few years, the Open Source Automation Day has established itself as Munich’s largest manufacturer-independent open source conference. In 2018 we had 20 speakers in two different tracks (one with a strategic and one with a technical focus) as well as 150 participants from the private sector, public authorities and the media. Thematically, it deals with trends, developments and technologies for data center automation. Due to the great success in recent years, we will expand the conference this year to a two-day event plus an additional workshop day. In addition to datacenter lifecyclemanagement, configuration management and container platforms, we also want to focus on cloud and AI this year.
