When it comes to maintaining and evolving open source software, particularly infrastructure software, many organizations struggle to stay on top of patches and updates and fall behind with end-of-life software. In fact, recent surveys from OpenLogic and Zend showed more than a third of OSS users have trouble keeping up with updates and patches, while nearly two thirds of PHP users are running an end-of-life PHP version.

There is, however, a better way — if organizations adopt a proactive, as opposed to reactive, approach to managing their OSS lifecycles. By developing processes and practices to smooth upgrades and standardize patch management, teams can make transitions between versions less painful and keep their stacks more secure.
