Five Open Source Projects to Watch Carefully in 2021
This IDC Perspective looks at five open source software project areas that have the potential to impact the industry broadly: Kubernetes, observability, natural language processing, continuous delivery enhancements, and a new Linux kernel technology to enable network monitoring by applications.
"The projects selected for review in this year's document are heavily centered around Kubernetes and modern containerized workloads," said Al Gillen, group vice president, Software Development and Open Source, IDC. "History has shown many of the projects that IDC has highlighted in the past have gone on to become important components of the computing landscape."
