Our developers ALWAYS tell us what open source they’re using!
Why won’t the community give us an SLA?
We want to open source 22 applications; why would we look in GitHub first?
What’s wrong with 20-man years of effort in one code dump to Hadoop?

Today, the enterprise is becoming one of the most dominant forces in the open source ecosystem and their impact is only going to increase. They are consuming open source as fast as possible, contributing not just patches and fixes but complete sets of functionality and open sourcing entire apps. But, at times, in their quest to garner all the benefits open source brings as rapidly as possible, their fervor can have unintended consequences. Is all this unfettered enthusiasm good for everyone?

In this talk you’ll hear real world examples of how enterprises consume, contribute and publish their own open source and its impact on the ecosystem. How these activities are changing the traditional dynamics of open source and how this continued trend will evolve open source. Based on numerous examples and direct experience with enterprises across domains, industries and the globe, I’ll present the current state of enterprise community engagement and discuss strategies on how to make the future bright for all stakeholders."
