Driving Business Agility with the Use of Open Source Software
Featuring Head of Open Source Governance at Thomson Reuters, Ed Tilford and
Melinda-Carol Ballou, Program Director for IDC's Application Life-Cycle Management and Executive Strategies Service
Global 2000 organizations leverage code from a vast array of sources, and are increasingly turn to open source software (OSS). OSS provides tremendous opportunities for efficient code creation, yet organizational strategies to manage it remain woefully inadequate due to a variety of factors including:
- Limited visibility into the origin and policy management of the code on which their businesses depend even though open source makes up 30% or more of the code at major G2000 organizations
- Complex sourcing: open source, offshoring, outsourcing, and geographically distributed internal development teams make collaborating and managing dispersed software projects a challenge
- Multitude of platforms: Islands of desktop, mobile, cloud and other platforms aggravate this coordination problem.
Gain real-world insights from the Head of Open Source Governance at Thomson Reuters, Ed Tilford, who shares how this industry leader governs and controls its use of open source software. Our other guest speaker Melinda-Carol Ballou, Program Director for IDC's Application Life-Cycle Management and Executive Strategies Service, will highlight open source software strategies that enable business agility and nurture community culture.
