Click through for results from a survey on open source management, conducted by Sonatype.

As IT organizations have come to depend on open source software more than ever in the wake of the recent downturn, it’s clear that managing open source software is becoming increasingly challenging. This creates not only management headaches, but real security and compliance risks to the business.

A survey of 2,550 IT professionals conducted by Sonatype, a provider of repository software for managing open source components, finds the situation is improving as IT organizations become savvier about the need for wrapping formal processes around the use of open source software.
