The question of the day posed to IT decision makers across the globe: What would you rather have — an infrastructure that is open or closed? The infographic below by North Bridge and BlackDuck highlights some very interesting stats t— if you read between the lines, it paints quite a different picture for the future of enterprise IT.
- Innovation does not happen in silos. It takes a community of open source hardware, software, and services companies to truly transform cloud, big data and mobile. Such communities may even include your competitors!
- Open source software development is one area high school students should be looking to embrace come career decision time.
- Commercial vendor support for open source software was favored by only 12% of those surveyed. Sounds like up and coming brands and/or off-the-shelf “white-box” hardware may work just fine for enterprise IT decision makers.
