As of today, The Open Source Census is now LIVE and accepting data!
The Open Source Census is a new project to collect and share quantitative data on the use of open source software in the enterprise. In short, that just means we want to count how many enterprise installations for each open source package. Our goal for The Open Source Census is to show how much open source is already being used by enterprises and encourage the use of more open source software. See the full press release on the launch of The Open Source Census.
The Open Source Census uses an open source tool, OSS Discovery, to scan a machine for open source and optionally contribute the results to The Open Source Census. You can learn more about OSS Dsicovery at the OSS Discovery community.
Along with OpenLogic, sponsors include IDC, Unisys, Collabnet, Holmes, Roberts & Owen, Navica, Olliance Group, Open Solutions Alliance, and the Open Source Business Foundation. Jim Jagielski of the Apache Software Foundation is acting as an advisor.
