The 451 Group was happy and honoured, therefore, to be asked to collaborate more closely in the creation and presentation of this year’s Future of Open Source Survey.

This interview with Michael Skok about The Future of Open Source Survey was published at SandHill.com on May 26, 2010.

The 2010 Future of Open Source Survey gathered insight on the opportunities and challenges of today's open source market based on 551 executive respondents from customer and vendor organizations. The study found increasing confidence in open source's ability to drive business value and signs that the technology may have passed its "tipping point" and be on its way to mainstream enterprise adoption.

In a recent interview, Michael Skok, General Partner at North Bridge and founder of the survey, explains the new role of innovation as an adoption driver, the power of the White House as a customer, the new money-making strategies being used by vendors and investors, and an outlook on the future of open source.
