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.
Project Teams, Open Source Program Offices and Open Source enthusiasts that value the work of the open source communities by establishing and maintaining a professional Open Source Management and have an interest in increasing the overall OSM-maturity in the business. The session is a follow up to the previous years presentation and will show some directions to improve the situation in the future together.
