Open Source in Embedded Systems

Gain Visibility and Control of Open Source

Embedded device and systems manufacturers use open source software (OSS) to build products faster, better and cheaper. While the benefits of open source are well-known, the fact that ad hoc use limits these potential benefits and may expose your organization to challenges is lesser known. Device companies that employ industry best practices use 60 to 80 percent open source code in their products.

Using open source at significant scale requires proactive management, especially to ensure compliance. However, few organizations have implemented proactive governance solutions to optimize OSS benefits. Gartner predicts that 50% of companies will face challenges due to lack of open source policy and management. In order to maximize the benefits of open source while ensuring that the proper controls are in place, your organization needs to employ a program that encompasses a combination of strategy, policy and technology.
