Attractive as open source is, many organizations still have concerns. With these challenges in mind, Canonical, released Ubuntu Pro, a comprehensive subscription for open source security, compliance, and support.

For modern enterprises, adopting open source isn’t a matter of “if,” but “when.” Open source’s momentum is remarkable and, more and more every year, open source is associated with cutting-edge technologies, cost savings, and a modernized technology stack.

Ninety-seven percent of applications leverage open source code, and 90% of companies are applying or using it in some way. According to Forrester, more than half of Fortune 500 companies use open source software for their development projects. In 2022, developers started 52 million new open source projects on GitHub. And, developers across the platform made more than 413 million contributions to open source projects.

And yet, attractive as open source is, many organizations still struggle with the “how.” Concerns over support, security, and compliance continue to hover over open source adoption. Those certainly are areas where no enterprise can afford to compromise.
