Old Industry discovers Value of Open Source

von Dr. Stefen Ferber (Bosch Software Innovations GmbH)

Thursday, 23.05.2013, OITS 1, 11:00-12:00 Uhr

The advantage of open source software convinced many companies from the so called “old industries” to engage. And Bosch is not an exception! The Bosch Group is a leading global supplier of technology and services. More than 300,000 associates generated sales of 51.4 billion euros in the areas of automotive and industrial technology, consumer goods, and building technology in fiscal 2011. Bosch corporate structure with a foundation at its core and its long term values are well-suited for open source. Bosch embraces open source technology and starts building open source partnerships (e.g. eclipse membership). This presentation shows some open source software examples from practice:

- Internet Application Platform: Software Platform for the Internet of Things & Service - BUSMASTER: Monitoring, Analysis, Simulation, Design of CAN networks - BIOS: Bosch Internal Open Source - GENIVI: In-Vehicle Infotainment reference platform
