We are seeing greater adoption by enterprise organizations as open source enters the mainstream. Coupled with this trend in adoption is the increase in the number of open source software vendors. Recent research by The 451 Group looks at end user needs for open source and the opportunities that exist for software vendors serving this expanding market. Specifically, it focuses on the emergence of 'open source stack providers' and how this category of software vendors is transforming to meet customer demand.
