Open source guidance

Perforce Software has released a free tool for organizations considering open source software.

The OpenLogic Stack Builder comes from the OpenLogic team at Perforce and guides IT leaders through the process of building their technology stack—through interactive questions and expert advice, helping them navigate through various technologies, regulatory requirements and implementation considerations.

Enterprise organizations are beginning to adopt more open source technologies, as they find open source can enable innovation and freedom from vendor lock-in. According to Gartner, “through 2022, the percentage of open source within IT portfolios relative to either homegrown or licensed third-party solutions will grow by 30% compound annual growth rate (CAGR)”.*

“With thousands of open source technologies available, organizations need guidance on which tools will work with their existing infrastructure and application stack,” said Tim Russell, Chief Product Officer at Perforce.

The OpenLogic team created the Stack Builder to help organizations better understand the regulatory requirements of each open source package, which packages will run smoothly together, and how they can get started implementing these open source technologies.

“OpenLogic helps organizations leverage open source software to meet their business demands,” said Justin Reock, Chief Architect for OpenLogic at Perforce. “The OpenLogic Stack Builder provides a framework to start from and the OpenLogic team offers expert migration, training, and development services to accelerate adoption of critical open source solutions.”

Civo, a pure play “cloud native” service provider, has published the result of its research on the use of containers in organisations. It surveyed 1,000 cloud developers and found that half reported their organisation use containers now, and 73% of those organisations are using it in a production environment. However, the research also revealed that complexity around container orchestration is hindering adoption, with 47% reporting that this complexity is slowing down their organisation’s use of containers.
Now, organizations can quickly set data in motion on their private infrastructure with the simplicity, elasticity, and reliability of cloud-native data systems.
Kubernetes, supported by a vibrant open source community, can drive outstanding innovation. To help in Kubernetes adoption, Red Hat and IBM Research have created Konveyor, an open source project aimed at helping modernize and migrate applications for open hybrid cloud by building tools, identifying patterns and providing advice on how to bring cloud-native transformation across IT. Konveyor also supports a growing number of tools, such as Crane, Forklift, Move2Kube, Tackle, and Pelorus, designed to accelerate Kubernetes adoption.
