Black Duck Code Center is the leading platform for open source governance, helping you leverage the power of open source in your software projects. Using open source, along with third-party and custom code, speeds application development, but if not managed properly, it can also introduce significant legal, operational and security risks.
Robust open source policies and procedures are important, but without automation tools, rules and regulations can bog developers down and prevent them from meeting project deadlines.
With the Black Duck we found the right solution to execute our open source governance policy by providing a scalable and transparent approval process.
The Black Duck® KnowledgeBase™ is the industry’s most comprehensive database of open source project information. It includes over ten years' worth of data, more than 1 million software projects from more than 8,500 sites, and detailed data for more than 2,400 unique licenses, including vulnerabilities, full license text and dozens of encoded attributes and obligations for each license. New open source project versions and metadata are continually added in to the KnowledgeBase.
