Why would you allow open source usage in your company. What are the compelling reasons to take the risk. In this discussion, I talk with Topo Pal and Derek Weeks about the industry perception of open source and what's really happening behind the curtain at large enterprises. Topo had just finished his keynote presentation at DevOps Enterprise Summit 2018 and I wanted to dive a little deeper into some of the things he talked about.
