Alignment of Community Contributions and Business Goals - How Can Your OSPO Help? - Masae Shida, VMware

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Today, it’s nearly impossible to build software without open source. Some projects are massively popular, and quite often used in multiple products within the same organization. But are we all collaborating on these projects in ways that are aligned across the company? Here your OSPO can help your organization work towards the same goals. Which open source projects are strategic and built into your product portfolio? Who in your organization is contributing to these projects? How do you know your contributions are not impeding each other? Broader involvement should occur in a coordinated and thoughtful manner across the key projects your business relies on. Having a united front within open source communities will help your organization drive consistent and effective contributions. The talk will cover: *Why do we align our community contributions with corporate product strategies? *How can your OSPO help coordinate contributions across the organization? *How can you identify your company’s strategic open source projects? *How can we ensure these projects will continue to be viable and sustainable? The audience will learn how an OSPO can enable more efficient and effective contributions to open source projects in ways that are aligned with both their business and community goals.
