This IDC Perspective looks at five open source software project areas that have the potential to impact the industry broadly: thin virtualization, Istio and service mesh, deep learning, edge-enabling infrastructure, and enabling technology for serverless computing.
"Open source software is or will be an essential part of every organization's IT strategy going forward," said Al Gillen, GVP, Software Development and Open Source, IDC. "These five project areas are subjects that you should be familiar with — and should be following so you can take advantage of products and services built around these important solutions in the near future."
