Open-Source Technology: Four Trends for CIOs to Capitalize on

By Umme Sutarwala - March 14, 2022 3 Mins Read

With each passing year, the open-source community sees a slew of exciting new technologies and ideas. Identifying these trends is critical for open source teams who want to avoid risk and unlock inventions in the 2022.

Enterprise innovation in infrastructure modernization, application development, and digital transformation has evolved thanks to open source technology. It has become a software industry innovation engine as organizations choose to reinvent how they use open source in areas such as security, big data analytics, cloud management, and so on. The fact that it enables better and safer collaboration and visibility in digital transformation has led IT companies to adopt open source operating systems.

According to The State of Enterprise Open Source report, enterprise open source is employed in 64% of IT infrastructure modernization projects, 54% of application development projects, and 53% of digital transformation projects.

Here are some top open-source trends for businesses to keep an eye on in 2022 and beyond. 

Fog computing

For processing data, fog computing frameworks give businesses more options. Fog computing is used for boosting data privacy. As a result, data can be examined locally rather than being transferred to a centralized system, which may compromise its privacy. With the use of a variety of technologies that fog computing offers, fog computing can also assist in the development of various web applications.

Kubernetes skills are in high demand

Kubernetes is frequently used in the business world. Companies, on the other hand, perceive barriers to container adoption in a new question they included now. The specifications differ slightly depending on the location. The basic pattern, though, was clear: it’s largely personnel and talents constraints that are standing in the way, either directly or indirectly through a lack of time in relation to other priorities.

The main impediments to corporations succeeding with their digital transformations, according to Red Hat’s 2022 Global Tech Outlook were skillset or talent gaps. While it’s easy to attribute this to pandemic-related employment difficulties, it’s not entirely new. And, over time, organizations have encountered people, skills, training, and time as roadblocks to implementing new technologies.

Free use APIs (Public API)

OpenAPI is the industry standard for defining RestAPI or HTTP APIs, and it is widely used by both open-source and proprietary solutions. OpenAPI (formerly known as Swagger) provides a basic, standard format for API designs that non-developers can understand, encouraging developers to focus on answering customer demands rather than API minutiae.

The front team can create a fake API to evaluate integration between the application and the API using the OpenAPI design guide. Making a dummy server to prototype the UI and provide appropriate documentation is simple.

Security with open-source software

What makes open-source solutions such big targets is their growing popularity and ubiquity, which causes the industry to take notice and fund (previously woefully under-resourced) projects like OpenSSL cooperatively.

Open source technology is the modern standard since it provides numerous advantages.

The threat element has increased as the use and adoption of open source has grown owing to data breaches such as vulnerability attacks. This does not, however, imply that businesses will overlook the advantages. In addition, to be in the safe zone and prevent threats, numerous procedures reduce the likelihood of attacks and protect the software.
