The Eclipse Foundation has released the results of its 2023 Cloud Developer Survey, revealing an increased enterprise reliance on open source technologies to accelerate the adoption of cloud native solutions.
The online survey, the 2nd edition, was conducted between November 21 2022 and January 13, 2023. It had 534 participants distributed across a number of departmental roles, including Development (47%), Cloud/Platform Engineering (10%), DevOps (8%), IT (6%) and Security (6%).
The aim of the survey is to gain a better understanding of the cloud-based software development ecosystem by identifying the requirements, priorities, and challenges faced by organizations leveraging a cloud-based development model, including those based on open source technologies.
Commenting on the results, Mike Milinkovich, executive director of the Eclipse Foundation said:
“Cloud-based software developer tools are experiencing significant momentum as developer teams around the world continue to shift work to cloud native architectures. Our research has shown the majority of these developers not only leverage open source technologies but are increasingly looking to solutions governed by an open source software foundation. This demonstrates that there is solid traction for open source cloud development tools. Moreover, in an increasingly crowded market, Eclipse Foundation projects like Eclipse Open VSX, Eclipse Theia, and Eclipse Che are making an enormous impact by providing the community-led open source technologies that developers need.”
Conclusions drawn from the survey data include:
The top takeaway from the survey is:
Companies should align their consumption of open source software with a commitment towards supporting open source projects and foundations. In addition to allowing developers to use OSS (which will increase the likelihood of attracting and retaining highly skilled staff) organizations should consider their financial and strategic commitments to sustaining the open source ecosystem.
