The ‘State of InnerSource’ survey was conducted from November 2022 to January 2023. Over 100 respondents answered the survey and provided a snapshot of their InnerSource journey at that point in time.
The research based on this survey data represents a diverse set of experiences from across the world. It provides an overview of how the InnerSource Commons community is approaching InnerSource, and also how InnerSource fits within their own organizations’ strategic direction.
The ‘State of InnerSource 2023’ offers a global perspective of our community’s InnerSource trajectory from first steps to team readiness and adoption. It also shares data on the InnerSource practices in most common use, the benefits experienced and success measures and metrics.
A huge thank you goes to each member of the InnerSource Commons community who gave their valuable time to answer our survey.
