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.

Black Duck Solutions

Harnessing the power of open source and maximizing its benefits requires a combination of strategy, policy and technology. Black Duck solutions help you find and manage the use of OSS and intellectual property throughout the development lifecycle, from planning projects and reviewing code to understanding license obligations and creating reports. 

The Black Duck® Suite is a comprehensive set of governance and compliance automation tools that enable development organizations to harness the power of open source technologies and methods. Black Duck Consulting offers open source governance, policy and strategy consulting services to help you achieve your business objectives. 

The Black Duck Open Hub, a free community resource, is the most comprehensive public directory of OSS and the contributors who create and maintain it. Open Hub Code Search is a publicly available, free code search engine indexing more than 10 billion lines of code.
