SAP is the 9th largest commercial contributor to open source projects. Mostly known for proprietary software, almost all of SAP’s solutions touch open source in one way or another. The Open Source Program Office, founded in April 2018, has the mission to nurture and support the open source approach to software development inside and outside of SAP.
Listen to our host Karsten Hohage and our guest Peter Giese why Open Source is important in a global enterprise, why it is a triple win for customers, developers and SAP, and why you need an Open Source Program Office. These and more questions will be answered in this episode.
