Open Source Governance & Compliance

Implement Best Practices

Open source software (OSS) empowers developers to increase innovation, efficiency and competitiveness. As open source becomes more and more pervasive, the need for governance and compliance solutions increases exponentially. Gartner predicts that by 2014, "50% of Global 2000 organizations will experience technology, cost and security challenges due to a lack of open source governance" and through 2015, "less than 50% of IT organizations will have effective open source governance programs in place."

Poor OSS governance can expose organizations to potential quality and business risks, putting organizations and their software assets in a vulnerable position. As such, it is more important than ever to ensure developers use approved and supported code. To protect themselves, organizations need a governance approach that covers each phase of the process, from acquisition to approval, cataloging, auditing and monitoring.
