The Open Source Initiative and OpenLogic by Perforce Announce the Results of the 2023 State of Open Source Survey.
OpenLogic by Perforce and the Open Source Initiative (OSI), a non-profit that promotes the use of open source software, have joined forces to create the 2023 State of Open Source Survey, which Perforce Software announced today has begun (OSS). The survey, which examines how open source software is used and managed on a daily basis, is scheduled to continue until November. The data collected from the survey will serve as the foundation for the 2023 OpenLogic and OSI State of Open Source Report.
Nearly 77% of firms are expanding their use of open source software, according to the 2022 State of Open Source Survey, which garnered responses from over 2600 open source users. The vast talent shortages that accompanied that increase, however, were reported as a barrier to the adoption of open source software by over 30% of respondents.
The 2023 survey is brand-new this year, and it will raise money for World Food Program USA, which helps the United Nations World Food Programme save lives in emergencies and use food aid to create a path to peace, stability, and prosperity for people recovering from conflict, natural disasters, and the effects of climate change. OpenLogic by Perforce will donate $1 to the World Food Program USA for each legitimate survey response.
“Last year was our biggest survey and report to date,” said Javier Perez, Chief Evangelist and Director of Product Management at Perforce Software. “This year, we hope to expand participation in the survey, raise money for a great global cause, and deliver an even better look into benefits and challenges organizations encounter when using open source software today.”
“For enterprises using open source software, understanding the trends shaping the open source ecosystem is essential,” said Stefano Maffulli, Executive Director at OSI. “This survey will provide the inside data and analysis teams need to make informed decisions about adopting and using open source software — and hopefully raise a lot of money for a great cause.”
