This session will provide an update on the Sakai Software, Foundation, Community, and a roadmap for further development. The Sakai software and community demonstrate a model of multi-institution collaboration to develop and deploy enterprise-scale software. The Sakai Foundation has over 100 paying members with 13 Sakai Commercial Affiliates all contributing to a healthy ecosystem based on an open licensing model. The Sakai software is now in full scale enterprise-wide use at institutions on multiple continents. Continuing integration with digital repositories and content providers remains a top priority for the community, and a recent Mellon grant is further evidence that Sakai-Library integration works.
