Open source is accelerating innovation, increasing collaboration, and enforcing an ethos of transparency. Modern enterprises that have embraced this are seeing results from this new way of working, but like all enterprise transformations, the journey isn’t always easy. As a key contributor in the open source community, Walmart understands this transformation firsthand as demonstrated by the release of OneOps * Electrode and the contribution to popular open source projects like React, Node.js, Puppet & OpenStack. In this presentation, Megan Rossetti and Andrew Mitry of Walmart share how the world’s largest retailer has adapted and continues to adapt to an open source philosophy. They’ll tell the story of Walmart’s journey to open source by showing what was successful and sharing metrics, key learnings & advice with the ambition of helping other companies adapt to an open source culture.
