The adoption of open source, by enterprises, has continued to accelerate in recent years. According to BlackRock’s recent survey, over three-quarters of all enterprises run on some form of open source software.* However, there are still those who are wary of open source technologies and the benefits they can provide, citing issues such as support, compliance, and roadmaps/future plans to name a few. But not all open source technologies are the same: some are designed with the enterprise in mind.

In this webinar, Bart Copeland, CEO of ActiveState and Jay Lyman, Research Manager Cloud Platforms at 451 Research, discuss recent trends in open source programming language adoption by enterprises, how it impacts the overall business, and what it means for the future. Some of the topics they’ll cover include:

  • Enterprise trends in open source programming languages
  • Language distributions and the peace of mind they provide
  • Indemnification, a must-have for today’s businesses
  • Mission and business critical support, backed by more than a community
