Last week, principal analyst Jay Lyman at 451 Research published a new report entitled Managed open source: A new approach to maintaining and securing your open source supply chain. In it, Jay shares data about the increasing prominence of open source as an enterprise development and IT operations priority. 

Today, open source is critical for modern application development—and this trend becomes even more pronounced when development teams are asked to cut costs in difficult economic times.

The new report highlights how a managed open source strategy can help organizations accelerate their open source application development work while reducing cost and maintenance, security, and licensing-related risk.

If the developers on your team are more interested in deploying than complying, and you want to remove roadblocks so they can use the open source components they want in a sanctioned, secure, and compliant way, this report is for you.
