Open Source for Independent Software Vendors (ISV)

Ensure Open Source Compliance and Governance

As a software vendor, you work hard to meet your customers’ demands for next generation features while stretching development budgets and compressing project schedules. These pressures lead many vendors to the open source community to remain competitive by building products better, faster and cheaper. 

While the benefits of open source software (OSS) are well known, the logistical challenges are not often adequately addressed. Ad hoc use can expose potential quality and business risks, putting your organization and your software assets in a vulnerable position. Using OSS according to industry best practices, which can be 60 to 80 percent of your code base, requires proactive management, especially to ensure governance and compliance requirements are met.
