InfoWorld Bossies

Deadlines and guidelines for all InfoWorld Best of Open Source Software Award candidates.

Best of Open Source Software Awards

InfoWorld’s Best of Open Source Software Awards, aka Bossies, 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 InfoWorld, please email Executive Editor Doug Dineley at any time. In addition to the name of the specific software project you’re suggesting, please include a link to the project’s main page or repository. A few sentences on why the software is important and worthy of our coverage would be helpful but is not required.
