Some years ago, researchers realized that IoT devices would need to buy and sell from one another. In this “Economy of Things,” the items to be traded will include power, data, and connectivity. Most transactions will be fast, low value, and high frequency.
For a company like The Bosch Group that’s active in everything from autonomous vehicles to thermal plants, the Economy of Things will touch many lines of business. That’s why, in 2017, the company’s advanced research group, Bosch Research, was looking to find a way to scale up blockchain transactions to support the Economy of Things.
Bosch set out to do meet that requirement by leveraging a specific, step-by-step open source strategy for developing new markets:
Identify a requirement
Consider the terrain
Build a partnership
Pick a suitable license
Use open source archetypes
The goals were to lead an effort to create standards for the Economy of Things and to build a framework where different partners could work together.
A survey for likely partners led the Bosch team to Perun, an early layer-2 protocol that passes state information off-chain through virtual channels. Bosch joined forces with several academics to implement this protocol and start creating an ecosystem.
As part of the process, Perun needed a stable home where everyone could access the latest code, and other people could find it. Hyperledger Labs provides a space where developments can be started without the overhead of creating an official Hyperledger project.
In Q3 2020, Perun was welcomed into Hyperledger Labs, and development has continued with work from the team at Boch and PolyCrypt GbmH, a startup spun out of the Technical University Darmstadt, where much of the academic research behind Perun began.
The Bosch team was eager to talk about its approaches and contributions to Hyperledger Foundation. To that end, they worked with Hyperledger marketing and others in the Perun community on a case study that details not only the business and technology challenges they’ve set out to tackle but also the strategic way they are leveraging open source development to advance the industry for all.
We never know what technology will turn into the Next Big Thing.
Perhaps Perun will be one of them, powering billions of micropayments between IoT devices or enabling people to shop with Central Bank Digital Currencies (CBDCs) that are still on the drawing board today.

It’s tough sourcing enough talent today to meet growing IT team needs, but life finds a way. Our recent 10th Annual Open Source Jobs Report found 93% of employers are struggling to find enough employees with open source skills. It doesn’t help that 73% of professionals feel it would be easy to find another job, and they are demanding higher salaries than ever before to stay put. Between an overwhelming talent shortage and competition from other employers, many companies’ IT teams are at risk of “going extinct”.
93% of employers are struggling to find enough employees with open source skills.
There is a way to address this situation however. The Open Source Jobs Report also found:
74% of professionals are asking for more training opportunities so they can keep up with current technologies
62% said training is the thing their employer can provide that would help them be more successful, a higher percentage than any other option
81% of professionals want to add new certifications to their resumes this year
90% of employers are willing to help them pay for them
Companies need to keep up by providing formal training and certification opportunities to their employees or risk giving them one more reason to leave.
62% said training is the thing their employer can provide that would help them be more successful, a higher percentage than any other option.
It should be kept in mind that providing training and certifications not only makes employees happier by demonstrating an employer’s willingness to invest in them and their career opportunities, but these opportunities also benefiSavet the employer. Having a better skilled team means you will be more successful in achieving your technology goals, and having more certified professionals on staff means your customers can have more confidence in your teams’ abilities.
Providing training and certifications not only makes employees happier by demonstrating an employer’s willingness to invest in them and their career opportunities, but these opportunities also benefit the employer.

Raise your hand if you ever downloaded software by recording a series of tones onto a cassette tape as it was being broadcast over a radio station.
Patrick Debois did – back in the 1980s as a budding computer enthusiast. He recalled that Europe didn’t have the network of electronic BBSes that existed in the U.S. These radio broadcasts were one way to distribute software, although they were often thwarted “when your mom walked in the room saying something and ruined the recording.”
Patrick was only temporarily deterred and continued exploring his passion for computers but missed a community. He found a community when Linux came on the scene. He recounts the value of the Linux community, “The fact that there was a sharing community, and the Linux community of tools that I could just use, especially as a student. I know open source is not about being for free. But it was tremendously helpful to me as a student at that time to be able to try new stuff, to learn new stuff, to dissect new stuff on the open source.”
In 1994, as a student at the University of Ghent, he setup a web page where anyone could contribute URLs to help people explore the Internet. This was about the same time that Yahoo! started manually indexing the Internet. His site was running on an old Spark machine, and it was fascinating for him to be using a machine running on shared source. He then moved to his first job out of college, where he ran a web server, a firewall, and other new technologies.
Later, Patrick worked for the government, where he and his team ran the first mail server, first DNS service, etc., all on three AutoCAD stations. He was required to buy proprietary software from vendors, but was frustrated because when something didn’t work, he had to wait for the vendor to provide updates. He often wished he could just try and fix it himself and then share with others what he did. Sound familiar?
Patrick voiced, “If people are yelling at you, right, and your only excuse is, we’re asking the vendor, and it will take like a week or a month, that’s no excuse. And that makes you feel powerless at those times. So that’s been the reason why we started taking the other route mixing both? Sometimes you get good support from vendors. It’s not like one or the other. Open source itself is also not the guarantee that you have good support, or that it’s easily written. But if there’s a community that’s supportive, and it’s open source, then you feel like a good citizen and a member to contribute your fixes and solutions.”
Open source itself is also not the guarantee that you have good support, or that it’s easily written. But if there’s a community that’s supportive, and it’s open source, then you feel like a good citizen and a member to contribute your fixes and solutions.
Fast forward to 2000 and open source is starting to gain more steam and broader acceptance. The Open Source Development Labs combined with the Free Standards Group to standardize Linux. The project morphed into the Linux Foundation in January 2007, at which point it gained nonprofit status and was funded and sponsored by a consortium of major technology vendors.
At first, Patrick had his doubts this could work, worried one company would be able to put their interests above those of the consortium when it comes to projects that are building standards. “I’ll be honest, I have my doubts in a way that I’ve probably seen too much of the discussion about open standards, or RFCs, or whatever, being kind of like written in certain directions that certain companies wanted to in these kind of situations. But I also liked the fact that there is a governance now, and that there is a discussion and not one part is owning this. So I see the Linux Foundation probably more as a mediator in the discussions between those companies. But I love them to remain neutral and not take a stance whether we should do a certain thing, yes or no. . . I think we’re all conscious enough, when we were coming to the Foundation, that it’s a balance of multiple views on the problem.”
One of Patrick’s favorite Linux Foundation projects is sigstore, a new standard for signing, verifying, and protecting software. The project has 465 members from over 20 companies. He also has his eye on the LF AI & Data Foundation, notably the data side because, “You can share your source quite easily, but it’s the data that makes it interesting.”
There is so much more to Patrick’s story, including being credited with helping coin the term DevOps. The good news is that his story is on an episode of the Linux Foundation’s Untold Stories of Open Source podcast. Check out the full episode and subscribe on your favorite podcast platform.

From today, financial institutions, corporations, NGOs, regulators and academics can access the code behind OS-Climate’s tools to support climate-aligned financial decisionsDeveloped in collaboration with BNP Paribas, Allianz, Airbus, Amazon, Red Hat, Ortec Finance and The Linux FoundationSupports OS-Climate’s mission to provide the data and tools to enable the +$5 trillion annual climate-aligned investment required to meet the goals of the Paris AgreementLaunches collaboration in building a transparently governed, non-profit public utility of climate data and analytics
New York 20 July 2022 – Linux Foundation’s OS-Climate, the non-profit organization providing open source data and software tools to enable the global shift to climate-aligned finance and investing, has today released for public collaboration three analytic tools critical to tackling the climate crisis.
The three tools, Physical Risk & Resilience, Portfolio Alignment and Transition Analysis, were developed cooperatively by OS-Climate members, led by BNP Paribas, Allianz and Airbus respectively.
With today’s public release, OS-Climate’s tool development moves into an exciting new phase. Enabled by cloud services contributed by Amazon and Microsoft, the door opens to the global community of academic institutions, government agencies, modellers, and software developers for further powerful collaboration in building out the tools and Data Commons, a library of data and metadata suitable for use with OS-Climate’s toolset.
In addition to Airbus, Allianz, and BNP Paribas, OS-Climate’s financial services sector, technology sector, financial data and ‘real economy’ corporate members include, Amazon, BNY Mellon, EY, Federated Hermes, Goldman Sachs, London Stock Exchange Group, Microsoft, the UN-convened Net-Zero Asset Owner Alliance ($10.6 trillion asset under management), Ortec Finance, Red Hat, and S&P Global.
Truman Semans, CEO of OS-Climate, said: “These tools will generate the refined data and actionable insights needed for pension funds, asset managers, and banks to rapidly align their investments and loans to net zero and resilience goals. They can be used not only by the leading members within the Glasgow Financial Alliance for Net Zero (GFANZ) but the rest of the global financial community.”
The Linux Foundation’s community-led open source development approach, combined with strong, independent governance processes and methodological governance oversight, provides the transparency, trust, access and inclusion needed by all whose investment decisions impact climate change.
BNP Paribas leads the development of the Physical Risk & Resilience Tool that enables financial and non-financial stakeholders to identify and quantify risk related to climate resilience, through asset vulnerability models that use probability and severity forecasting of extreme climate events.
Allianz, with support from Ortec Finance, leads the development of the Climate Portfolio Alignment Tool, which helps financial stakeholders to align portfolios at individual holdings and loan levels with the Paris Accord target temperature increase of 1.5 degrees Celsius.
The Transitional Analysis Tool developed by Airbus will enable corporations to model, test and conduct scenario analysis for strategic climate-aligned decisions. This is the key to enabling the large-scale transition of real economy corporations toward Net Zero and resilience through climate-aligned investments in R&D, capital projects, other infrastructure and supply chains.
Commenting on its leading development role, Laurent David, Deputy Chief Operating Officer at BNP Paribas, said: “Robust and accessible data are essential to implement material climate policies and make sustainable finance credible. They are essential to allow financial institutions to set priorities, define objectives, and control their achievement. As a global financial institution, we can play a significant role in driving collaboration across the industry to help manage climate risk and increase investment in climate-aligned companies and projects. Through our collaboration with OS-Climate we can develop open source tools based on proper data far more rapidly than we could on our own. This will ultimately foster transparency and trust.
Günther Thallinger, Member of the Board of Management of Allianz SE said: “Allianz’s collaboration with OS-Climate reflects our commitment to support and embed climate-aligned investments and the critical transition to net-zero greenhouse gas emissions. We will continue to collaborate with a growing finance sector movement to harness the value of data that we as an industry will use to turn our commitments into real economy change.”
Robert Litterman, former chair of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission’s (CFTC) climate-related market risk subcommittee, said: “This platform could be a real game-changer. The Linux Foundation’s approach is uniquely able to build public goods that serve a wide range of public interests. This platform will accelerate innovation by commercial providers that can build on the ‘pre-competitive’ layers of data and technology OS-Climate is building. It also can help advance multiple goals of financial regulators for managing risk in the financial system, especially in terms of generating meaningful and comparable climate-related risk disclosures from corporations.”
Margaret Kuhlow, Finance Practice Leader, WWF International, said: “Dealing with the profound and compound crises of climate breakdown and nature loss means aligning global financial flows for a net-zero, nature-positive economy. This relies on securing good, decision-grade data, which is a challenge too large for any single institution or company to tackle alone. By supporting a systematic approach to the provision of high quality, open data on climate and nature risk, and integrating that with standard financial data, OS-Climate could help accelerate the development of robust data solutions that enable financial institutions, tech companies, and commercial data leaders to contribute to a fairer, greener, more resilient future.”
The tools will utilise the OS-Climate Data Commons, led by Red Hat, which will act as a public utility of corporate and other climate data and has enabled OS-Climate to significantly progress its technical roadmap announced at COP26. Development of the Data Commons, in collaboration with organizations including ClimateArc, will address the urgent need of the finance community for data that is transparent, consistent, and interoperable.
Linux Foundation’s OS-Climate is a breakthrough initiative creating a transparently governed public utility of open data and open source tools for climate-aligned finance investing, business, and regulation. OS-C uses the open collaboration approach that delivered rapid COVID vaccines, applying that to solve data gaps now blocking rapidly scalable transition of capital toward a resilient Net Zero economy.
Members contribute their data scientists, modellers, and software developers to cooperative projects building the OS-Climate Data Commons, a federated library of libraries of corporate and factor data, plus analytics tools to derive the actionable metrics crucial for asset allocation, portfolio construction, security analysis, credit analysis, corporate engagement, strategic planning and transition investment by corporates, and financial sector supervision.
