30min: Strategic use of Free Software at Siemens

Strategic use of Free Software at Siemens


Siemens is a large engineering company making highly complex products. Often, these products are mission critical for customers, or form crucial bits of civil infrastructure. A large and growing part of their functionality is implemented in software. Free Software components already are important building blocks in many Siemens products. How does Siemens use Free Software, and why? What's the strategic importance of Free Software for the company? And how does Siemens engage with the global community?

While Free Software has been widely adopted in the software business world, there is considerably less public discussion about its take-up in the world of "traditional" industry. At the same time, industrial companies are increasingly making use of Free Software, and are becoming more involved in the community. This talk will explore the industry view on Free Software, and will provide valuable insights to people from the community, from other companies, and from the public sector.
