Collaboration is not only a good means to develop software together. Also managing Open Source software benefits a lot from collaboration between companies.

The Open Source Tooling Group has been formed by OSS project contributors and experts in OSS license compliance: the goal is to jointly support open source projects and to work on integration cases between tools. This collaboration enables turn-key license compliance solutions, because individual OSS projects do not cover all areas of OSS license compliance in companies.

The proposed panel presents experts both from developing OSS-based solutions and managing OSS license compliance programs.

The panel focuses on discussion about the following three questions: What is being worked on currently for integrating the existing open source license compliance software? Where are more efforts needed? Where is the trend in future going to?
