Leverage open source to drive cloud innovation

Digital Innovation & Transformation

Once considered to be an unusual development methodology, open source has come into its own. Companies now understand that they can take advantage of different perspectives and collaboration in the open source community to drive cloud innovation and deliver better products faster than ever.

Innovate faster in the cloud with open source

Once considered an unusual way to develop end-user software, open source is now pervasive, and it has come into its own as an innovation engine—especially for cloud. The open source development model fosters the kind of creativity and associated speed of production that is largely unavailable with traditional, proprietary development models. In this episode of the podcast, David Linthicum and guest, Chris Wright of Red Hat, discuss the benefits of leveraging open source development. Chris argues that using open source models can help organizations unlock value by pairing tools and technologies with people in a collaborative environment that stimulates great ideas. He also gives his predictions on the bright future of open source and discusses ways open source development can help companies operate more effectively in times of disruption.
