TODO Group Announces 2021 State of OSPO Survey
The Linux Foundation | 10 June 2021
The TODO Group, together with Linux Foundation Research and The New Stack, is conducting a survey as part of a research project on the prevalence and outcomes of open source programs among different organizations across the globe.
Open source program offices (OSPOs) help set open source strategies and improve an organization’s software development practices. Since 2018, the TODO Group has conducted surveys to assess the state of open source programs across the industry. Today, we are pleased to announce the launch of the 2021 edition featuring additional questions to add value to the community.
The survey will generate insights into the following areas, including:
- The extent of adoption of open source programs and initiatives
- Concerns around the hiring of open source developers
- Perceived benefits and challenges of open source programs
- The impact of open source on organizational strategy
We hope to expand the pool of respondents by translating the survey into Chinese and Japanese. Please participate now; we intend to close the survey in early July. Privacy and confidentiality are important to us. Neither participant names, nor their company names, will be published in the final results.
