Take the 2013 Future of Open Source Survey

The results and conclusions from the survey will be presented in a live webinar on April 17

Every year for the past six years, a consortium of software companies has collaborated to conduct a survey on attitudes and adoption of open-source software in business. The 2013 Future of Open Source survey is now open and taking responses until March 28. Open source analyst group 451 Research is a collaborator again this year, along with Revolution Analytics, Red Hat, Hortonworks, and several other open-source software firms.

If you work for a company that is using (or plans to use) open-source software, or for a company that produces or supports open-source software, please take the survey. (It should take around 10 minutes to complete.) The results and conclusions from the survey will be presented in a live webinar on April 17. The conclusions from the 2012 survey can be found below.

 

Please take the 2013 survey before March 28 by following the link below.
