Why Read This Report

Historically driven by grassroots developers, adoption of open source digital experience (DX) software is expanding, due in part to commercial vendors — many of which support free community versions of digital experience software and make money from enhanced "enterprise" editions. Application development and delivery (AD&D) pros cite flexibility and accelerated time-to-market as key benefits. This report examines the different flavors of open source digital experience and offers advice on considering these options as you build enterprise digital experience capabilities.
