These days, many companies are struggling with ever-expanding software code bases. What to do with that set of homegrown libraries or that data processing application? Maintaining it could prove costly and divert engineers from working on new and innovative projects. There's one option that's attracting increased interest: release it as open source.

Anyone can copy, distribute or embed it as they see fit, without having to pay royalties or even negotiate a license agreement.
