It is about taking open-source development practices and applying them inside a single organization. There’s an InnerSource Commons Community with more than 70 members, the report added.

Ross Gardler, an Executive Vice President at The Apache Software Foundation and Microsoft Principal Program Manager on Azure, in a Twitter post said that Microsoft’s Director of Accessibility for the Cloud and Enterprise division, Gianlugo Rabellino, would be heading up the new Inner Source Initiative.

Rabellino was part of the founding team of Microsoft Open Technologies, the open source subsidiary of Microsoft before he took the Accessibility role in 2016.
