A few weeks ago, we had the opportunity to co-host a webinar with 451 Research principal analyst Jay Lyman.

During the webinar, Jay and Tidelift co-founder and CEO Donald Fischer discussed why open source tends to thrive in recessionary times (like the rise of Linux during the dotcom bust in the early 2000s and cloud computing during the Great Recession in 2008). They speculated about whether open source is beginning a third wave of adoption during the current downturn fueled by organizations’ desire to cut costs without hurting their ability to move fast and continue to innovate. And they discussed the workloads that are ripe for migration in this third wave, too.

Jay and Donald also shared some best practices for implementing a managed open source approach to application development in an enterprise environment. They discussed how leading organizations are using managed open source to reduce costs while building applications more safely and effectively than ever before.

If your organization is looking to open source as a way to reduce costs while continuing to accelerate innovation, this webcast is for you.
