Oracle Users Indicate Increase in Use of Open Source

The Independent Oracle Users Group (IOUG) has released its second major research study focusing on open source adoption trends, “Open Source in the Enterprise: New Software Disrupts the Technology Stack.” Conducted for the IOUG by Unisphere Research and sponsored by MySQL AB, the study builds on a similar report issued in mid-2006 covering open source adoption trends in the enterprise stack. The findings point to ongoing interest in open source software solutions for operating systems, databases and middleware with most organizations reporting that they intend to increase their use of open source in general over the coming year. However, open source applications remain less widely adopted.

The full report is available from the IOUG here.
