T. Rowe Price on How to Stay Competitive with Open Source Governance

Black Duck Software Press Releases - Wed, 11/12/2014 - 17:30
Webinar

To fully deliver on the promise of open source software (OSS), companies need to automate the management of open source from the point it enters the organization, throughout the development process, and across the supply chain. Without this level of logistical control over enterprise OSS usage, organizations face licensing, operational, and security risks.

While they navigate the complexities of OSS compliance, organizations are also trying to streamline the build process by deploying build automation and continuous integration solutions. Integrating OSS governance into build automation significantly improves business agility and development efficiencies.   

Join Michael Wasiak, ____ and Bill Weinberg, Director of Open Source Strategy at Black Duck, for a discussion on how integrating governance and build automation empowers software development organizations to:

  • Standardize use of selected open source components and versions by cross-checking build manifests against approved OSS component catalogs
  • Enable support of chosen OSS and coordinate OSS selection with integration and build
  • Increase re-use of software by highlighting pre-approved components

Xerox Talks Best Practices for Open Source Governance

Black Duck Software Press Releases - Thu, 11/06/2014 - 20:00
Webinar

Xerox pioneered digital imaging, the graphical user interface, and the Ethernet, among other technological innovations. Today, the company is finding new ways to innovate using open source software (OSS). OSS has become nearly ubiquitous in the corporate enterprise, with developers turning to it to reduce costs, enhance flexibility, and reduce time to market. But as organizations increase their use of open source, they need better solutions to the logistical challenges that accompany its use.  
 
Join Robert Levine, Licensing Executive for Xerox, and Black Duck as they discuss open source best practices, common challenges, and emerging trends. You’ll learn about tools for managing open source, and hear the answers to commonly asked questions including:
 

  • Why should a company want to be compliant when it comes to OSS usage, and what are the impacts of non-compliance?
  • When should companies start thinking about OSS compliance?
  • What steps are needed to build a successful OSS compliance program?
  • Who should be involved in building an OSS policy?
