Implementing an efficient and safe FOSS strategy in a global company

Alcatel-Lucent has a FOSS governance process in place since 2002. We have improved this process over years to cope with all aspects of our business (outsourcing developments, contributing to FOSS, merge and acquisition of companies,) and with new technologies (maven, bit-torrent, DRM, cloud computing).

We shall discuss the process but also that implementing and keeping efficient such a process in a big company it is a true challenge and a daily task: thousands of people from many different organizations  (R&D, lawyers, procurement, product quality, suppliers) need to be aware and involved.

This presentation will stress the factors of success and the pitfalls to avoid in order to successfully and safely manage the use of FOSS in a big software company.
