March 20, 2018

Why Read This Report

Digital transformation often runs on open source software. From the operating system to the latest responsive design framework, many open source technologies are stable and ready for prime time. However, open source is free "like a puppy is free," as the saying goes. Lock-in and technical debt occur with open source as well as commercial software, so I&O leaders must carry out due diligence on open source products. This report helps I&O pros understand the operational implications and risks of using software with alternative support models.
