Interesting post from Red Hat on Open Source

14 May 2015 6:42 AM | Michael O'Neil (Administrator)
Further to the 451 research highlighted here in the previous post, Luc Villeneuve, country leader for Red Hat (and TCBC member), has posted a piece entitled "What every Canadian IT Leader should know about open source." Luc offers responses to four common questions about open source, focusing particularly on "how will open source integrate with my current technology stack?"

    Don Sheppard: Planning and architecting for environments that exploit open source products and tools certainly needs to be taken seriously these days. However, caution is also needed not to jump on the latest bandwagon too quickly (as perhaps some are doing with Docker technologies).
    The relationship between open source and industry standards is also important - does open source complement or replace formal standards?

    Michael O'Neil: Thanks for this, Don - you raise some interesting points. I agree that the rush to Docker might be a bit overdone - I get that containers are/can be important, and that Docker provides containers, but I'm not sure that it follows that IT architecture needs to be Docker-centric...

    Re: open source vs. standards - I think "complement" is the right position. Open source enables rapid, effective and cost effective innovation, but IMO, it's really a means rather than an end.
