With an aim to escalate enterprise adoption and spur a new class of cloud innovations around mobile, analytics and other high-growth areas, IBM will release 50 projects, developerWorks Open, to access emerging IBM technologies, for the open source community.

"IBM firmly believes that open source is the foundation of innovative application development in the cloud. With developerWorks Open, we are open sourcing additional IBM innovations that we feel have the potential to grow the community and ecosystem and eventually become established technologies."
