Software-defined vertical industries: transformation through open source

A recent McKinsey & Co. report described, the “biggest differentiator” for top-quartile companies in an industry vertical was “open source adoption,” where they shifted from users to contributors. The report’s data shows that top-quartile company adoption of open source has three times the impact on innovation than companies in other quartiles.

Just before ONES, we published a new resource highlighting how open collaboration enables user-centered innovation, achieving faster development cycles, time to market, and increased interoperability and cost savings. The paper delves into the major vertical industry initiatives served by the Linux Foundation with a detailed feature on LF Networking.
