Shaun Bierweiler, vice president and general manager of the public sector business at Cloudera, wrote in a LinkedIn article published Thursday that open source provides mission-critical value to public sector clients in support of their missions and requirements.

He cited some of the benefits of open source to government customers, including adopting a platform without the need for clients to enter into a vendor lock-in arrangement and gaining access to an “ecosystem open to a range of tools, applications, and infrastructure providers.“

Bierweiler said the company's continued investment in Kubernetes, Spark, Kafka and other open-source projects reflects Cloudera's efforts to provide government agency clients access to the open-source community’s technology platforms.

“Furthermore, open source allows us to maintain a widely integrable platform, configurable with a variety of tools, apps, and infrastructure, and open, backward-compatible APIs for our partners,“ he added.
