This IDC Perspective looks at five open source software project areas that have the potential to impact the industry broadly: SONiC, OpenTelemetry, function services, common cloud data models, and open source hardware designs.
"Open source has become more than a way of building software; it is becoming a process that is fundamental enabler of community-based development of new technology," said Al Gillen, GVP, Software Development and Open Source, IDC. "Some of these five project areas are very likely to be topics that will benefit your organization, and as such, you should be paying attention. Most, if not all of these projects, will result in new technologies that can enable your company — or your competition."
