11 open source companies to watch 2016

Open source companies worth watching focus on cloud computing, applications, machine learning and more

As we know, open source software companies provide original source code that is free and available to be redistributed and modified. These organisations rely on communities of developers to write, improve and inspect their code with the intention of turning those users into customers, by providing support services to those using the free open source code.

While organisations like Red Hat, SourceForge and OpenStack have written the rule book when it comes to open source software, more and more companies are promoting open source strategies, most notably Apple, which open sourced its programming language Swift last year.

This list will be regularly updated so if we've missed one you think should get a mention, let us know.

Here are 11 open source companies to watch this year.
