Sony Group is a company with business units in a wide variety of categories, including electronics, semiconductors, gaming, film, music and finance. Much of Sony‘s early work with Open Source was focused on its electronics business (which efforts was talked at OSPOCon 2021). In this talk Sato&Fukuchi would like to discuss the challenges that we faced spreading our Open Source program throughout Sony's other business units. Each business category has different products, technology, culture, and a unique approach to Open Source. While it is efficient to have some things in common, it is unreasonable for the entire group to have exactly the same programs. The electronics business, which develops consumer electronics products with embedded Linux, focuses on both contribution and compliance, while the film business focuses on contribution and interoperation of software assets, including open sourcing 3D animation tools and formats. The approach is to have an OSPO central hub around community experts for Open Source program and communications, and to share policies, education, and best practices within the group. In this talk, Sato&Fukuchi will describe how we are responding to the challenges by modifying our Open Source program and support for the different business categories.
