There’s no denying that open source is the modern development platform, with 92% of applications containing open source components. But only 17% of organizations have a formal process for introducing new open source components to their codebase.
We asked this same question 2 years ago in our 2018 open source survey, and the good news is that the number of organizations with a formal process has nearly— from 10% when we last asked the question to 17% today.
But what’s keeping 83% of organizations from formalizing the process they use to evaluate and introduce new open source components?
Perhaps organizations fear putting more formal rules in place because they worry these processes might add bureaucracy that saps development velocity. We think there is a huge opportunity for organizations to implement strategies that don’t force developers to make a false choice between moving fast and stay safe—but instead allow them to do both.
Join us Wednesday, Jan. 13 at 2 p.m. ET / 11 a.m. PT when Tidelift CEO and co-founder Donald Fischer will be joined by guest speaker Chris Condo, Principal Analyst at Forrester, to share how to build an open source strategy that will accelerate application development and minimize risk.
We’ll share how you can maximize the benefits of open source like cost savings and access to innovation and top talent, while minimizing the risks caused by open source-related security, maintenance, and licensing issues.
