Big companies coming from the old industry business are moving slowly but steadily towards Open Source which is becoming a more important part of companies strategy every year. Urs Gleim will talk on the journey over the last two decades of Open Source Software usage and re-distribution as part of products up to strategic projects. One of the current strategic projects is the Civil Infrastructure Platform (CIP) project which aims to speed implementation of Linux-based civil infrastructure systems such as railway infrastructure, power generation, and power distribution, traffic lights, as well as industrial automation. It builds upon existing open source foundations and expertise, establishes de facto standards by providing a base layer reference implementation, and contribute to and influence upstream projects regarding industrial needs. Furthermore, the talk will cover how to internally disseminate the Open Source efforts and what companies can learn from Open Source governance models.
