Why open source?

The open source revolution is fueled by the need for agility. Organizations like yours are turning to open source to get to market quickly and to solve business problems faster by leveraging best-of-breed capabilities. In fact, a 2015 survey found 78 percent of companies run on open source and 66 percent build software on open source.*
