Correct handling of Open Source in a commercial context is a challenge. Every company needs to build up and maintain their own IP process to face this challenge. A sophisticated tooling seems to be inevitable. While managing Open Source every day it seems reasonable to also collaborate with the Open Source Community on the Open Source Management System itself.
Bosch Software Innovations uses an Open Source approach on tool level (e.g.https://projects.eclipse.org/proposals/sw360 ) as well as on a system level (e.g.https://www.openchainproject.org/) to continuously improve the Open Source Management System and to collaborate with suppliers and partners.
The audience is everyone who is involved in managing compliance and legal issues in software project and product development (e.g. project leads, open source officers, compliance officers).
The talk will introduce Open Source collaboration for Open Source Management and therefore allows them to reflect on their current practices and possibilities to get involved.
