    Learning is a pillar of the open source ecosystem. Online education programs like Coursera and Udacity allow developers at every level to hone their skills with specialized courses and certification programs, while removing the barriers of time, cost and location. Developers and even curious non-coders have access to courses from some of the best universities around the world, and the topics range from machine learning to Python 101. Sponsoring an online education program, similar to IBM Big Data University or AWS Educate, is a great way to increase presence in the developer community and cultivate the next generation of developers.

To understand the impact that open source technology has made on the enterprise, one need only look to the numbers. With over 35 million GitHub repositories, 1,961,460 lines of code on Hadoop and over a thousand Apache Spark contributors, the open source ecosystem is home to some of the world's most innovative and impressive tech collaborations. With some of the biggest names in tech leading the charge — Apple's Swift programming language, IBM's machine learning technology SystemML and Facebook's Relay JavaScript framework were all made public in the past year — open source technology is set to change the way we process, stream and analyze data.

In this slideshow, IBM VP of Big Data and Analytics on z, Dinesh Nirmal, and IBM VP of Offerings, Big Data and Analytics, Ritika Gunnar, outline several tips to help enterprises make the most of their open source strategy.
