Innersource is not only a technological subject, but it's also a digital transformation process that could bring great value to your business by breaking silos, crowdsourcing talents and innovations, maximize code reuse and quality, … It is more and more popular among companies and European ones are no exception. However, depending on their size, culture and their organization model, they are sometimes facing complex challenges to solve in order to implement a successful innersource initiative. These challenges may be cultural, legal, financial, related to change management, and so on.

Some french big companies recently started a cross-company workgroup (ENGIE, SNCF, PSA, Thales, Veolia,  RTE, etc.) on this topic and this Bird of a Feather session is a great opportunity, beyond this workgroup, to share problems we are dealing with and improve our approach toward innersource by mutualizing experiences. This BoF is, of course, open to everyone.
