SurveyRobotIt’s only been a week, but preliminary results of the 4th Annual Open Source Development Survey sponsored by NEA, Rugged, Sonatype, Contrast Security and the Trusted Software Alliance show some interesting results with the first  1500+ responses:



  • 84% of respondents use Maven/JAR open source component packages, followed by 22% using RPM/YU
  • 34% state open source components are more secure than COTS
  • 62% don’t actively monitor for changes in open source vulnerabilities

With over 3500 participants last year, this is one of the largest, ongoing industry studies. The survey is open until April 30th, so give your input and let’s see what happens.
