ActiveState Creates Open Source Language Automation Category


VANCOUVER, British Columbia – Nov. 15, 2018 – ActiveState today announced a new category, Open Source Language Automation, to fill the marketplace void created by new industry dynamics in relation to open source. Companies waste time on managing, securing and administering open source programming languages. At the same time, application security is at odds with the goals of development: speed, agility and leveraging open source.

ActiveState aims to be a driving force for companies’ success with open source deployments. To learn more about this new category and the ActiveState vision, click here.

As an open source language leader for more than 20 years, ActiveState brings an intimate knowledge of the patterns impeding anyone working with open source code, be it individual contributors or the industry as a whole.

ActiveState has claimed a leadership stake in enabling organizations to realize more value from open source. It will foster awareness and education of the industry mega-trends that have created the marketplace void. As the starting point ActiveState defined three areas to be addressed to derive more value from open source:

  • An application development and delivery lifecycle approach specific to open source runtimes;
  • An application deployment and manage approach specific to open source runtimes;
  • Open source value stream management.


Bart Copeland, CEO, ActiveState, said: “ActiveState is taking its 20 year leadership trajectory in open source programming languages along with analysis of the mega-trends affecting the industry to build a category that will help increase the value gained from open source languages. Over 90% of the world’s software runs on open source and programming languages are a pivotal starting point to building software.”
