Open-Source Usage Continues to Expand
You are probably thinking “Yes, I know that Linux, MySQL, are being used.

And, my developers are also using a bunch of open-source tools to help manage the development process,” but I’m not talking about infrastructure or tools, I’m talking about open-source components that are used to build today’s applications. Thankfully, developers have turned to reusable components, and they assemble their applications, versus writing source code from scratch. Why create your own Web framework, logging mechanism, etc., when you can turn to components and frameworks from open-source projects? But, the usage of these components needs to be managed, or you will introduce security, licensing and quality issues into your applications.
