Use of open source software (OSS) among many enterprises is on the rise. Complex software stacks that leverage both commercial & community open source software are being used to modernize IT initiatives. Linux distributions, such as Red Hat, SUSE, Ubuntu and others, are increasingly favoured, because they are cost effective, they reduce time to market and they allow organizations to generously build upon them while pursuing their own business objectives. Organizations are relying on multiple OSS packages, however, they can create oversight and ongoing support issues. Hiring expensive consultants, mining through OSS communities for answers or seeking support from multiple service providers can add up to increased costs, risks, and time.

If you are one of the organizations which are adopting enterprise IT solutions based on open source technology because they relish becoming part of a dynamic and open community that gives technology new meaning, and if you are facing challenges related to its unforeseen complexities, join our OSS Webinar on January 9th where you can find how IBM can be a partner, supporting more than 200 OSS products (between commercial and community OSS).
