Sucess factors for open source adoption

It’s been a while since I did my last Open Source – from whitespace to Black Duck on open source and I thought that now is a good time to reflect on what we experienced, learned and changed in the way we adopt open source software at SAP. Being a vendor of enterprise applications comes with a number of responsibilities since customers expect – in addition to the right functional scope – a clear commitment to usability, quality, reliability, and, last but not least, security. So, essentially the same commitment needs to cover open source products we integrate into our product portfolio or choose to interoperate with. What this actually means and how we are able to execute on this commitment is something I’d like to explain in a webinar on February 14th. Please register at, join the session and feel free to participate in the Q&A session – more than explaining our way, I’d also like get your feedback and to hear about your own experience.
