659 views

Published on

The development of 5G networks and the Internet of Things (IoT) will employ a process likely to be dominated by agile development of technology and platform prototypes often in Open Source, collaborative projects, which put a premium on "code first.” In light of this industry shift, the Open Mobile Alliance has embarked on a survey of mobile/IoT industry professionals to shed light on trends towards cooperation between the Open Standards and Open Source communities.

* 86% of respondents say their company is maintaining or increasing participation in Open Source organizations.
* >75% of respondents say machine-to-machine/IoT will rely heavily on Open Standards.
* In the scope of telecom services deployment, >80% of respondents say Open Source implementations of Open Standards will be the dominant trend in the next several years.

This presentation highlights all the results of the survey.

OMA Open Source Industry Survey Results

  1. 1. Copyright © 2016 OMA OPEN SOURCE SURVEY RESULTS May 2016 Elizabeth Rose, Marketing Director, OMA erose@omaorg.org
  2. 2. OMA’S MOTIVATION Ø  Two years ago, OMA started on a journey to understand how it could improve adoption of its service-layer specifications. Ø  Very quickly we found that Developers are key to widespread adoption. Ø  We began to create an ecosystem of tools and collaboration around our specifications that allowed for Developers to implement the specifications more easily. •  https://github.com/OpenMobileAlliance/OMA_LwM2M_for_Developers/wiki Ø  We also ran into the fact that the Developer community is highly oriented toward open source code, projects, tools and associations. Ø  We launched the survey in an attempt to find better data about how our traditional telco-oriented members are approaching Open Source and how that direction compares to a wider sample.

  3. 3. SURVEY BACKGROUND Ø  The purpose of the survey is to help OMA understand the role Open Source Software and Open Source Associations play in our industry. •  Understand prevailing attitudes regarding Open Source and Open Standards. •  Examine what (if anything) OMA should be doing to better serve its members and the industry at large in relation to Open Source projects. Ø  The survey population: •  The industry at large as serviced by the OMA marketing database and social media Ø  Survey responses – 419 individual responses including hundreds of text-based, open-ended answers. Ø  A summary of the survey will be available on the OMA website and will be sent to those who participated in the survey Copyright © 2016 Open Mobile Alliance Ltd. All rights reserved.

  10. 10. OPEN STANDARDS DEFINITION Copyright © 2016 Open Mobile Alliance Ltd. All rights reserved. 99% 1% Agree Disagree Public Open Standards are best defined as documents made available to the general public, which are developed (or approved) and maintained via a managed, collaborative, transparent, and consensus-driven process. "Open Standards" facilitate interoperability and data exchange among different products or services and are intended for widespread adoption. (adapted from ITU-T definition)
  11. 11. 98% 2% Agree Disagree OPEN SOURCE PROJECTS DEFINITION Copyright © 2016 Open Mobile Alliance Ltd. All rights reserved. Public Open Source projects are best defined as programs in which the source code is available to the general public for use and/or modification from its original design that is made available under an open source license. Open source code is typically created as a collaborative effort in which programmers improve upon the code and often share the changes among the programming community for such projects. At a high level, open source licenses allow users the freedom to use, modify, and distribute the source code without requiring any further permissions.
