Comparing Community Open Source Software to Other Software Types Used for Digital Innovation
This IDC Perspective compares the views of traditional enterprise organizations versus digitally innovative start-ups with regard to their use of open source software procured from community repositories. "One might think that digital natives are far savvier with their use of community open source software, but the reality is far more complicated than that. In fact, the two groups have similar levels of interest in procuring community open source software to help with digitally innovative work they are doing," says Al Gillen, GVP, Software Development and Open Source. "But shifting perspectives on other methods of acquiring software innovation suggests that digital innovators are ahead of the game on a broad-use perspective."
