International Data Corporation (IDC) has published an IDC Innovators report profiling three companies that provide commercial support for a portion of the overall portfolio of open source software, the company said.
The three companies are: Quansight, Tidelift, and xs:code.
The report, IDC Innovators: Open Source Software Support, 2020 (IDC #US46636820), profiles three companies that address the lack of commercial support for open source software by providing a means for enterprise accounts to gain support for OSS they may be using.
Quansight offers support services for a sophisticated set of OSS technologies that is tightly focused on machine learning (ML) and mathematical and data science applications.
Tidelift manages OSS developer tool and library maintenance on behalf of a customer, doing security scans and software composition analysis, helping triage issues, and ensuring enforcement of policies.
xs:code provides a marketplace-like solution that connects enterprise customers with the creators or maintainers of the OSS projects they are using.
IDC Innovators reports present a set of vendors — under USD 100 million in revenue at time of selection — chosen by an IDC analyst within a specific market that offer an innovative new technology, a groundbreaking approach to an existing issue, and/or an interesting new business model. It is not an exhaustive evaluation of all companies in a segment or a comparative ranking of the companies.
Vendors in the process of being acquired by a larger company may be included in the report provided the acquisition is not finalized at the time of publication of the report. Vendors funded by venture capital firms may also be included in the report even if the venture capital firm has a financial stake in the vendor´s company.
