Red Hat report: Enterprise open source new pandemic response
Red Hat recently released The State of Enterprise Open Source 2022 report, which highlights the changing perceptions about the use of the open source development model in the enterprise technology space. Now in its fourth year, the survey of nearly 1,300 IT decision makers reveals how organisations are increasingly shifting to open source software solutions to address COVID-19 related challenges and tackle new market demands for quality, speed and an evolving cybersecurity landscape.
The report also highlights that businesses are increasingly moving away from proprietary software and over the next two years, proprietary software as a percentage of the software already in use is expected to drop significantly.
This is in contrast to 92% of the survey participants who believe open source solutions are integral to their company's pandemic response, in addition to adopting enterprise open source generally as part of a broader push to modernise IT infrastructures (62%) and digital transformation efforts (54%).
