Olympus Software Technology Corp. (O-Soft) develops software for an array of Olympus products, and its development teams’ extensive use of open source software created a complex environment of open source licenses. For O-Soft, enabling an agile development team to operate at peak levels while avoiding the potential legal risk that comes with licensing violations was paramount.

  • Establish and enforce open source license policies across the organization
  • Identify and document open source within applications, including hidden or undeclared components

“Thanks to Black Duck, it became much easier to determine where unintended OSS is used. The risk of license infringement has been reduced significantly.”
