Product Implementation Services

Black Duck provides a full range of services to smoothly and seamlessly integrate our products into your environment. With thousands of customers around the world, we have more experience implementing the logistics of open source security, governance and compliance solutions than any other company.

Depending on your requirements, Black Duck can customize a solution that includes some, or all, of the following services:

Baseline Services

You're ready to jump-start your code management program - but if you were not previously managing the use of open source, you will need help identifying what's already in your code base. Black Duck offers baseline services that scan software in order to find open source and third party code while identifying intellectual property (IP).

Black Duck's baseline services can:

  • Detect the presence of unknown open source code before you release a new product or application
  • Enable vendors to provide customers with verified lists of open source and third-party components
  • Help developers understand and comply with open source policies related to third-party software
  • Support the reuse of existing source code that allows for more rapid development

Customized Configuration and Integration Services

Since no two implementations are exactly alike, Black Duck customizes the configuration and integration process based on your existing development tools. Our configuration services include the implementation of the Black Duck® Suite as well as building the forms to collect and organize the data you need while creating customized approval workflows. 

We pre-populate your software catalog with the components you are currently tracking in addition to ones that are discovered during analysis. Overall, we configure the Black Duck Suite for optimal performance and improved accuracy.

Black Duck's expert services team will:

  • Integrate solutions to align with your development tools
  • Automate compliance functions
  • Customize templates, reports, interfaces and databases
  • Perform other integration work to create a customized solution for your enterprise


Black Duck’s expert consultants work with your team to select and configure system hardware, prepare and optimize the operating system, and install and configure your customized Black Duck solution. We perform the initial client installation to verify and tune the product for optimal performance. 

Additionally, we integrate our solution with your development tools in order to automate compliance functions and customize templates, reports, interfaces and databases. Not only do our skilled consultants ensure your installation meets your requirements, they also ensure the implementation does not burden your already-busy IT staff. 

Our experience ranges from single locations with ten users to global organizations with thousands of users. Black Duck has the knowledge and expertise to scale to meet your installation requirements.

Project Management

Black Duck's project management services ensure the Black Duck® Suite implementation and integration process runs smoothly and efficiently. We provide continuity, expertise and quality assurance throughout the lifecycle of the project and customize deployments to meet your specific needs. 

An experienced Black Duck project manager serves as your project champion – the single point of accountability and communication for the entire project – and will coordinate activities and communicate critical milestones. 

Your Black Duck project manager will:

  • Work with the project team and stakeholders
  • Identify project risks and mitigation strategies
  • Document project assumptions
  • Develop project plans and direct project teams
  • Manage project scope
  • Conduct regularly scheduled status meetings

Whether you’re implementing at one location within one development team or across a geographically distributed organization with thousands of users, Black Duck's project management services will drive faster time-to-value for your installation.
