Today, open source software is built into most products and we make day-to-day upstream contributions. But how can we collaborate on these projects in ways that are aligned with our corporate business strategies? Which open source projects are built into your strategic product portfolio? Who in your organization is contributing to these projects? Do you work together to ensure your contributions are not impeding each other? For the key projects your business relies on, broader involvement should occur in a coordinated and thoughtful manner. Having a united front in the communities will help you to drive consistent and effective contributions. This talk will cover: *Why do we align our contributions with corporate product strategies? *Which open source projects are considered strategic for your company and why? *How do we collaborate on these projects across the organizations? *How do we know these projects continue to be reliable and sustainable? *How can we ensure that our community contributions reflect positively on our company? The audience will learn how to make more efficient and effective contributions to the open source projects that their business relies on in ways that are aligned with business and community goals.
