Employees use open source applications in organizations of all sizes and across all industries, and this trend shows no signs of slowing down. It is both cost effective and efficient to incorporate source code into software during the development stage. With all those extra resources, developers can focus more on the organization’s proprietary code.
According to a GitHub survey, 94 percent of respondents reported using open source applications at least occasionally, while 81 percent used them frequently. In fact, 82 percent of developers said their employers accepted the use of open source software, and 84 percent were encouraged to use open source code in their applications.
