Over 40 companies in Japan are sharing knowledge on open source business workflows, software bill of materials, automation and supplier education. The mental model being applied is the same as with open source code: platform knowledge is essential to each company but it is not a product itself. This awareness, and the subsequent sharing of extensive material, is transforming the local landscape. This talk will explore how this came about, how it works in practice, and how it can be pitched or applied in companies globally. It will finish by highlighting some of the new material being made available in English by the Japanese community and introducing the new work groups forming in Korea and China.
