An Insight into Open Source Initiatives at BT


Both BT's open source innovation capability, Osmosoft, and its open source governance unit, the Open Source Operations Team, aim to operate in as transparent a manner as possible. In support of this we contribute to initiatives such as FOSSBazaar and the European Legal Network, and where possible publish information about how we deliver using F/OSS technologies and how we implement the associated governance.
BT recently had an article on open source initiatives published in the Institute of Telecommunications Professionals Journal. This covers topics such as:

  • Open source opportunities
  • Challenges
  • Open source innovation principles, focus and delivery model etc
  • Standards
  • Governance

For a PDF copy of the article click here. I'd be very interested to hear any feedback that people might have.
