A blog for the enterprise open source community
Only five minutes of your time! (a survey reminder)Raven Zachary, June 2, 2006 @ 1:44 am ET
I posted a note about our open source stack providers survey in mid-May, and I am putting out a final call to take part in this short survey. The survey only takes five minutes, and your participation is highly valued. We will be closing the survey in the next few weeks and publishing the results in our our first CAOS report. Here are the details again…
A new wave of companies, known collectively as open source stack providers (or “stack certifiers”), has emerged to address the problem of integrating and supporting multiple open source software components in a single organization. Stack providers assemble sets, or stacks, of commonly used open source software components and offer services around them, including support and integration testing.
We are currently conducting a survey on this topic and would appreciate your participation. The purpose of this short, five-to-seven question survey is to collect information on how enterprise IT end users perceive the value provided by open source stack providers. These survey results will be used in a report by our 451 CAOS (Commercial Adoption of Open Source) Research Service. The survey should take no longer than five minutes to complete.
To participate in this survey, we ask that you have an understanding of your organization’s open source support efforts and have an awareness of open source stack providers. While the focus of this survey is enterprise IT end users, software vendors that support open source internally are invited to participate as long as responses relate to internal open source support and not to products or services provided to customers.
Participants will have the opportunity to provide their contact information at the end of this survey to receive a free seven day access to The 451 Group’s Market Insight Service. Participants that are willing to allow for follow-up discussion on the survey topic will be eligible for additional free research materials.
