Convinced that open source is the best instance of open innovation, I immediately applied as head of the new program for community open source promotion at Orange France in 2017.
Since more than 4 years now, I strongly believe that sharing knowledge on how to deploy Open Source in industry is a central point to facilitate its ecosystem sustainability for industrial purposes.
That is why I am involved in the boards of OW2 consortium and TOSIT association, to find synergies and win win relationship with open source ecosystem.
Today Orange France use more and more community Open Source.
We are under processing the generalization of collaboration with these communities through trusted partners like Oslandia or Rasa.
That is why Oslandia and Rasa will co-present with us two return on experiences on Orange France projects at OSXP 2021 !
