Open Source Management

Fundamentals for Engineering, Legal and DevOps

Understanding the different types of open source licenses is only the beginning. You also have to manage all of the open source software used by your company.

Open Source Management Fundamentals discusses:

  • Open Source responsibilities by department across the software development lifecycle (SDLC)
  • Open Source Management strategy
  • Open Source Management program implementation
  • Policies, processes and tools for Open Source Management

The management of your open source software can be divided into six basic areas, with responsibilities shared across engineering, legal and DevOps.These focus areas impact open source license compliance, security vulnerabilities, code quality, and risk management while your organizations scales its usage of open source.

The implementation of an automated Open Source Management Platform can streamline the management of your open source and give you a competitive advantage.
