Black Duck Developers Weigh in on Open Source
March 25, 2013
Black Duck has made a name for itself helping organizations build better software faster by choosing the correct open source components. Two of their leading developers, Dave Gruber and Peter Vescuso, give their opinions on the rapid growth of the open source market in the Linux Insider article, “Black Duck’s Dave Gruber and Peter Vescuso: Open Source Is Maturing.”
After a series of questions and answers, the duo responds to a question about how the rise of open source is impacting the market at large:
“By that I mean large organizations and large businesses are looking at what is happening in the open source industry around them. They are seeing all the innovation around cloud and mobile and the speed at which new projects are being created. They are looking at all of the innovation going on with these rookie projects and are saying that activity is compelling. They are wishing to bring those methods to their own companies internally.”
So, if organizations are exploring ways to integrate open source innovation into their own methods and processes, what is the most effective way to do so? For many companies it will mean adopting an open source value-added software solution, like LucidWorks. LucidWorks builds upon Apache Lucene and Solr, enabling organizations to benefit from the agility and efficiency of open source without having to build their own customized solution. Out-of-the-box, LucidWorks responds to the open source needs of the current market.
