Just like Google, Apple, or SAP – companies like Siemens have literally thousands of software engineers working on programs to make the devices, systems, and machines operate efficiently. In doing so, these programmers not only spend their time writing Siemens software but also participate in the development of open source software. As part of a global collective of creative programmers, they contribute to the development of powerful new programs as well as future standards and standard processes. To date, however, there is still no system for cataloging these software components in a clear and intelligible way. But now Siemens Corporate Technology is about to change that.
