From machine learning to increasing demand for data intensive customer facing apps and bullet proof scalability, the demands on open source are more than ever before.

As open source adoption in enterprises continues to grow exponentially across virtually all technology segments, their impact on the industry is having a commensurate effect. This is resulting in all sorts of changes in the open source community, within enterprises themselves and across the vendor ecosystem, both open source and proprietary. Open source enables enterprises to be more lean and efficient, to take more risks and to be more responsive to their customers but how is enterprise adoption impacting and shaping the evolution of open source.

How are enterprises adopting open source, what is working and what isn't, what actual impact are they having and is it good or bad for open source and will there ever really be a demise of proprietary software? This presentation will discuss current adoption in the enterprise using real world examples along with current trends such enterprises open sourcing their own software assets, the movement to being an "open source first company", Inner Source  and the future shaped by open source.  Discussed will be questions around whether enterprises are learning from their successes, their failures, their peers and the community, and what we can expect as their influence expands?
