This IDC Presentation presents a brief discussion of the role of open source software in digital transformation. This presentation was delivered as part of a series of "lightning talks" at IBM InterConnect 2017 on March 19, 2017, in Las Vegas, Nevada.
"The industry has made a clear shift to favor open source software, particularly among developers," said Al Gillen, GVP, IDC's Software Development and Open Source. "The evolution of open source software continues to move it to a more and more integral position in the larger software stack, particular so for cloud-as-a-service providers. This presentation takes a succinct look at this continuing and growing trend."
