Organizations that use, and contribute to, open source software understand that open source is a strategic enabler that helps them achieve business goals. But only organizations that take the next step and join working groups can unlock the full business value an open source strategy can deliver.

  • Working groups go beyond the good work that software developers contribute to enable open collaboration and innovation across organizations.
  • Members of working groups can align on common interests and develop a shared vision for open source software evolution that benefits all.
  • Working group benefits, such as vendor neutral governance and ecosystem development, allow members to focus on technology and innovation objectives while continuing to grow and diversify.
