The presentation will give experiences from Sony Mobile, which has gone from developing phones based on proprietary software to developing smartphones products which would be impossible to develop without Open Source. The experiences from Sony Mobile as well other companies who have embarked the journey of Open Source have been used to formulate a model which describes how to go from an ad-hoc view on usage of open source to a way of working where open source is part of the strategic decisions and the business. The talk will present examples of characteristic pattern activities at different phases of the model and concludes in the introduction of handbook on a Open Source Program for Industrials. In short, how to manage and govern Open Source in an industrial setting while benefiting of growing and extending your business.
