nterprise customers want open-source solutions to continue to work together over update cycles.

Enterprise customers are using open-source software more and more, but issues of interoperability are still a stumbling block to widespread adoption, say customers and open-source software vendors.

Enterprise customers need assurance that open-source solutions will continue to work together over update cycles before they will expand the adoption of open-source components across their IT environments, said Kim Polese, CEO of SpikeSource.

SpikeSource is focused on addressing the interoperability issue through its automated testing and certification framework, as it believes that solving the quality assurance and interoperability challenges presented by the proliferation of open-source projects and components will dramatically accelerate open-source adoption both in the enterprise and among SMBs, she said.
