Red Hat: Open source is driving innovationand the information economy -- but battle isnot over
By Paula Rooney | June 26, 2012
Summary: Red Hat CEO Jim Whitehurst said the standardization
 — 
akacommoditization or componentization
 — 
of technology though the opensource model has catapulted the information age into an informationeconomy
 — 
but the battle against proprietary vendors is not over.
The information age is finally evolving into the information economybecause of the standardization enabled by Linux and open source
 — 
but
it’s still a battle, Red Hat’s CEO said.
 The computer was invented roughly 60 years ago but only now are weseeing dramatic innovations, particularly in the cloud, mobile, and bigdata sectors
 — 
which are run largely next generation open sourcearchitectures, he said.
“One of the key reasons is we’re finally seeing componentizationhappening,” Jim Whitehurst told thousands gathered in Boston for theLinux leader’s annual summit. “More innovation will happen first inopen source and that’s a radical change from even five years ago.”
 
He’s talking, of course, about the standardization, or the
componentization, or the commoditization, if you will, of the underlyingcomputing platform upon which innovation happens.Big data was not driven by a vendor but by end users and the opensource project Hadoop. Cloudera is one vendor innovating on top of thatplatform but it does not control Hadoop, the Red Hat CEO noted.
