Accenture Study Shows Increased Adoption of Open Source Solutions
August 16, 2010
by Alliances Team
Recently, Accenture released the results of their open source study, which revealed that more than two-thirds of organizations anticipate increased investment in open source solutions in 2010 and more than a third are expecting to migrate mission-critical software to open source solutions in the next twelve months.
This year at the Red Hat Summit and JBoss World, Accenture served as the conference Visionary Sponsor and delivered a keynote highlighting why they are focusing attention on open source solutions now. One reason is that Accenture estimates that systems integration services around open source represents a $6.5 billion dollar market with growth outpacing that of traditional service businesses. Further, Accenture’s survey results revealed that 78% of enterprises have already deployed open source solutions and are planning on increasing their commitment.
As open source solutions enjoy increasingly mainstream adoption, leaders like Accenture will help usher in the next wave of open source technology adoption. We seem to be moving beyond the innovators and early adopter phase and are increasingly seeing the early majority emerge.
Through our strengthened partnerships with Accenture, and other leading Global System Integrators, Red Hat is committed to supporting this adoption trend. Specific to Accenture, this top-tier SI has invested in the establishment of an Innovation Center for Open Source, which leverages Red Hat solutions, including JBoss Enterprise Middleware. Further, Red Hat has worked with Accenture to create the Accenture SOA Reference Architecture, Accenture Foundation Platform for Java, Accenture Mobility Operated Services, and the Accenture Public Service Platform. All of these platforms, processes and methods are in place to help enterprises embark on IT projects that meet the ever-changing demands of business while decreasing maintenance cost and increasing performance and flexibility.
