Like most companies engaging in InnerSource, CA Technologies is focused on increased innovation, accelerated speed to market, higher quality, lower costs, and talent attraction and retention. It seems logical that code sharing and reuse would increase development velocity, which would in turn help your company achieve many of these goals. But how do you break down the barriers to enable engineers to share code across a large portfolio? And how can you get engineers to contribute and consume? How do you measure and communicate value?
Erin Bank explains how CA Technologies’s InnerSource program was formed and has evolved, discusses the associated challenges and successes encountered during the first year, and shares plans for capturing and communicating value in the future.
