Software is in the center of growth for all technology companies today. Whether it’s an automotive company trying to build an autonomous car or just optimizing the performance of their combustion engine, a telecom company, a cloud provider, a finance institution, or any other technology company, they all need to become software authorities.

Software development is to a large extent about re-use of code and successful technology companies need to master open source which is the main source of software components today. But success is also about being able to protect the ideas and the companies’ specific domain expertise.

To re-use and share software may be contradictory to protecting proprietary software assets and that contradiction defines the importance of compliance in any technology company.

Once the development strategy, policies and directives are defined, compliance is all about implementation.

In this talk, Oskar Swirtun (Founder and CEO of FOSSID) will discuss the problems enterprises face when it comes to implementing successful open source software strategies and will explore various compliance flows that will enable enterprises to have faster and more effective development, better community interaction, and lasting differentiation for technology companies.
