92% of applications developed today contain open source components. Yet the vast majority are not maintained to the standard you would expect of commercial software. And understandably so, since most open source maintainers haven’t traditionally been paid for their work.
Like any software, without careful maintenance, entropy sets in and things start to go wrong: broken builds, licensing mistakes, security incidents. Without someone else accountable to do the work, the burden of unmaintained dependencies falls on your team, slowing you down and taxing your capacity to build new things.What if you could have the flexibility to build with open source together with the confidence of commercial-grade software? Maybe you could move fast and not break things.
