Open Source Management: Fundamentals for Engineering, Legal and DevOps

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 organization 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.

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

Up to 90% of any piece of software is from open source, creating countless dependencies and areas of risk to manage. FOSSA is the most reliable automated policy engine for security management, license compliance, and code quality across the open source stack.

With FOSSA, engineering, security, and legal teams all get complete and continuous risk mitigation for the entire software supply chain, integrated into each of their existing workflows.

FOSSA enables organizations like Slack, Snapchat, Okta, Puppet, Epic Games, and UiPath to manage their open source at scale and drive continuous innovation.
