Black Duck Software Press Releases - Wed, 03/05/2014 - 17:30

Date: Wednesday, March 5th

Time: 11:30am EDT - What time is this for me

Open source software is fundamentally changing the economics of development.  According to Gartner 99% of Global 2000 companies will incorporate open source into their operations by 2016.  And software has become an increasingly important part of products of Enterprises beyond traditional “technology” companies, ranging from chemical companies like Monsanto to car companies like General Motors to consumer appliance companies like Bosch.

 Any company developing software will use open source software and needs to ensure compliance with the terms of OSS licenses.  These challenges are compounded by the spread of software development outside of the IT department. All kinds of companies need to manage the elements of open source that impact their business. It is not just about understanding whether a license is permissive or reciprocal. Even the most popular license differ in a variety of ways.

Join us as Karen Copenhaver, partner at Choate Hall & Stewart and Counsel for the Linux Foundation and Mark Radcliffe, partner at DLA Piper and General Counsel for the Open Source Initiative (OSI) as they:

  • Analyze and compare the important (though lesser known) elements of the most commonly used open source licenses.
  • Evaluate the Rise of Open Source in the Connect Enterprise
  • Overview of the Most Popular Licenses

Seapine Software's TestTrack Helps Find Root Causes Faster

Seapine Software Press Releases - Tue, 03/04/2014 - 08:00

Complimentary White Paper Discusses How to Simplify RCA and RCCA Processes

Cincinnati—March 4, 2014Seapine Software has published a new white paper that shows how its product development management solution, TestTrack, simplifies specific parts of the root cause analysis (RCA) and root cause corrective action (RCCA) processes. The paper also provides an overview of RCA and its benefits for product development.

When the same defects recur across several development cycles, many teams turn to root cause analysis. Finding the root causes of these defects and taking corrective actions to fix them permanently is one of the most effective ways to reduce development costs.

Seapine's free white paper, Using Root Cause Analysis and TestTrack for Powerful Defect Prevention, discusses the problems that development teams encounter when they attempt to perform RCA and RCCA manually.

The white paper also explains how an automated product development solution like TestTrack can reduce the time spent on RCA, RCCA, code reviews, and other quality improvement efforts.

By automatically tracking the product development data needed for process analysis, design for Six Sigma (DFSS), and similar reports, TestTrack can cut development costs while improving time to market.
