IBM’s approach to open technology

For several years, IBM has been recognized by many within the open
source community as a leader in open source. However, that leadership is less
well known and appreciated outside of the open source communities in which IBM
engages. In this article, you’ll learn how IBM has played, and continues to
play, a leading role in the evolution of open source — an approach to
software development that has nearly completely displaced proprietary software
— and how we leverage that leadership to deliver world-class offerings and
solutions that benefit our customers.
