“Our local enterprises are very strong, not only contributing a lot but also open-sourcing many projects. However, there is one area that is still lacking, which is the cooperation between enterprises in open source.” CNCF Greater China Director Keith Chan summarized in a live broadcast. The logic of collaboration and competition in the digital world is completely different from our past industrial era. For large software engineering or production projects with longer dependency chains, the engineering consumption, maintenance costs, and innovation promotion cannot be completed independently by a single commercial company but require the joint efforts of more enterprises. This means that IT-related enterprises need to learn to cooperate. In many cases, they may compete in business but need to cooperate in infrastructure, undoubtedly posing higher requirements for enterprises. Taking advantage of the momentum of GOTC 2023, we want to invite OSPO-related practitioners from local enterprises to discuss this huge challenge together. The aim is to take an important step in promoting local open source. We will focus on the following topics:

  • What role does OSPO play in enterprise cooperation on open source projects?
  • How should OSPOs interact between enterprises?
  • How should benefits be calculated?
  • How can OSPOs persuade decision-makers and business departments internally?
  • What are the requirements and expectations of enterprises for neutral organizations and institutions?
