China and Linux: A Lesson in Industry Transformation

Filed under

Organizations around the globe are increasingly developing new applications for big data, mobile and cloud, not to mention the increasing creation and use of social tools, within major markets like banking, communications, retail, transportation and finance. These new applications are also fundamental to operating in a connected world where sensors, data centers, smartphones and even cars are now all connected in a large ecosystem.

This influx of development has created a need for powerful infrastructure and processing speeds along with an ever increasing agility only possible through open source tools and operating systems, in an effort to further connect, collaborate and innovate on a global scale.

Of course, Linux has been the foundation of much of this disruption — and the operating system is becoming more popular across global growth markets. Worldwide enterprise adoption of Linux continues to rise, according to the Linux Foundation’s 2013 Enterprise End User Report.
