Open Source Language Automation Primer: Value Stream Creation

“Polyglot is killing the enterprise. There is a void in the open source ecosystem when it comes to languages. And keeping open source language builds up to date at scale is virtually impossible.”

– Bart Copeland, CEO, ActiveState

ActiveState has defined Open Source Language Automation to help companies address the pain points of polyglot environments. We’ve crafted this four-part series to provide foundational knowledge for implementing Open Source Language Automation.

In part four of the series, ActiveState shares the three pillars for organizations to measure and build the value of their open source languages. These pillars will enable enterprises to gauge risk and increase developer velocity, and optimize the value open source languages provide. The three pillars are:

  1. Enterprises should create an application development and delivery lifecycle approach specific to open source runtimes.
  2. Enterprises should create an application deployment and management approach specific to open source runtimes.
  3. Enterprises should employ open source value stream management.

This piece illustrates how you can measure the ROI of implementing Open Source Language Automation and helps you take the next step in assessing your readiness to implement Open Source Language Automation.
