Market Analysis Perspective: Worldwide Open Source Ecosystem, 2023
This IDC Market Analysis Perspective covers the Open Source Ecosystem research program and provides data and perspective related to the growing use of open source software in the industry in 2023.
"Open source software (OSS) continues to be the engine of software development and innovation, but pressures on OSS development coming from secure supply chain concerns and viability of economic models for vendors engaged with the OSS community is creating complexity and uncertainty," said Al Gillen, group VP, Software Development and Open Source, IDC. "We see customers continuing to be solidly behind OSS, but over time, the industry will likely be forced to evolve more quickly to respond to the new demands it is facing."
