Each year, InfoWorld’s Bossies (Best of Open Source Software awards) recognize the best open source software for businesses and professional users. InfoWorld’s central mission has always been to identify the most innovative products available to developers and IT organizations. Increasingly, those products—ranging from application development tools to platforms and infrastructure software to big data analytics and machine learning tools—come from open source projects. Bossie winners are chosen by InfoWorld editors and reviewers.
To nominate your favorite open source project for the 2018 awards, email Executive Editor Doug Dineley by July 31, 2019. In addition to the name of the specific software project you’re nominating, please provide links to the project’s main page and repository. A few sentences on why the software is important and award worthy would be welcome but is not required. The winners will be announced Sept. 25, 2019.
