Bitkom Open Source Monitor 2021

Bitkom just released the brand new Bitkom Open Source Monitor 2021. Bitkom is Germany’s digital association, members come from more than 1,000 SMEs, over 500 startups and virtually all global players.

The study is the result of a survey of more than 1,100 companies. Following the first edition two years ago, it shows what role open source software plays in Germany,
the direction in which it is developing, and also the extent to which companies are involved in the open source community.

One remarkable insight is that more than 71% of companies use open source, however 72% do not have any open source strategy, meaning that they do not have processes to ensure compliance or to detect security vulnerabilities.
