The study found that, open source operating systems, databases and middleware are more prevalent in smaller organizations with 57 percent of those having open source, users citing cost savings as the greatest motivation for adopting these systems. While enterprises are not as agile or able to derive business benefit from access to source code for custom coding or making site specific modifications.
