InnerSource is the use of open source best practices and establishment of an open source culture — within your organization.
You may develop proprietary software, while opening up work between developers and teams internally.
With the increasing pace of technological change, internal communication and collaboration have become key competitive differentiators, as they are both essential to agility. Not only between technical teams in software, IT, security, or data science, but across entire organizations, it has never been more important to get everyone working better together.
By setting the default to open for projects within your organization, you can enable reuse of existing solutions and minimize redundancy, empower and incentivize collaboration across teams, and leverage talent across your workforce.
Many benefits that are typical of open source development can be realized with InnerSource.
