This is a talk about a year long journey focused on open sourcing a collection of extremely successful and mature Pivotal data products (Gemfire, HAWQ, Greenplum) and catalyzing young open source communities around them. You will hear about our internal struggles, what challenges we had to overcome, what business models we had to considered and the gnarly questions that we had to wrestle with. This talk will also highlight some of the salient technical details and historical background that made this journey even more exciting and got us to join some of the most recognizable open source communities: Apache Software Foundation and PostgreSQL. Finally, with all of these communities and their products having highly varied histories, licensing, and governance models we will share lessons learned in the fine art of delivering this phenomenal amount of open source innovation to the enterprise
