Facebook and LinkedIn dominate their space largely because of bulletproof technology stacks. Traditional database and streaming technologies couldn't cut the mustard, so these Big Tech firms rolled their own, and then open-sourced the code. Alongside Apache Spark, we now see Cassandra and Kafka revolutionizing the use of data to a scale and depth never seen before.

For the enterprise, these success stories fundamentally changed the game. Open-source software (OSS) is now the trusted foundation, not just for the operating system (Linux), but for a whole host of solutions up the stack.

In this webinar, Perforce Chief Evangelist Javier Perez explain why OSS is ready for primetime. He'll be joined by Bloor Group CEO Eric Kavanagh, who will offer insights about the rapid evolution of enterprise IT in the era of open-source.
