Why enterprises embrace open source

Bernard Golden | June 2, 2015
I just finished attending two conferences: the Cloud Foundry Summit and the OpenStack Summit. Both were hives of activity, with attendance well up on the previous event. Most striking to me was the significant presence of large enterprise IT decision-makers -- architects, directors of applications and operations, and even a sprinkling of CIOs.

Open source will become a much higher percentage of every IT organization's environment, given its advantages in terms of cost, control, and innovation. Likewise, open source skills will soon become a critical requirement, both for using open source wisely, but also in attracting the kind of talent necessary to compete in a Third Platform world.
