Abstract

The phenomenon of adopting open source software development
practices in a corporate environment is known by many names,
one being inner source. The objective of this study is to investigate how
an organization consisting of small development teams can benet from
adopting inner source and assess the level of applicability. The research
has been conducted as a case study at a software development company.
Data collection was carried out through interviews and a series of focus
group meetings, and then analyzed by mapping it to an available framework.
The analysis shows that the organization possesses potential, and
also identied a number of challenges and benets of special importance
to the case company. To address these challenges, the case study synthesized
the organizational and infrastructural needs of the organization
in a requirements specication describing a technical infrastructure, also
known as a software forge, with an adapted organizational context and
work process.
