The trend of collaborative and reusable software development using open source software has spread to many companies, including SAP. In the last few years, SAP has not only used open source software but has also been actively involved in initiating open source projects and contributing code. With this increased involvement, developers at SAP needed to have a simple and transparent process for contributing to the open source community. For this reason, SAP OSPO worked on streamlining the existing outbound open source process that required lots of manual steps. The newly improved open source contributing process enables developers to easily start a new open source project and contribute code while being compliant and secure. The entire process workflow is executed via GitHub, a tool that is close to the developer community. Both developers and OSPO members benefit from having transparency into the status of any given request while being able to manage open source projects.
