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 2016, at least 95 percent of IT organizations will leverage nontrivial elements of OSS technology in their mission-critical IT portfolios, and fewer than 50 percent of organizations will have implemented an effective strategy for procuring and managing OSS."

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.
