The 451 Take on the Future of Open SourceMatthew Aslett, May 17, 2011 @ 6:59 pm ET
As previously mentioned, The 451 Group was very pleased to be able to participate in this year’s Future of Open Source Survey. We believe that the results provide critical insight into the wants and needs of end users that will help shape the evolution of vendor business strategies designed to meet the long-term needs of the industry.
The 451 Group’s research has previously shown that the benefits of open source software are many and varied and The Future of Open Source Survey highlights the fact that multiple factors are driving the increased adoption of open source software, including freedom from vendor lock-in, greater flexibility and lower cost.
As part of our involvement in the survey we have produced a report providing our perspective on the results and what they mean for the industry. The report is available to 451 Group clients here, and is also available to non-clients here. The report is free, although you will need to complete a short form to receive the report, which will also give you the opportunity to trial additional 451 Group research.
