OpenTeams - The Future of Software

Open Source Program Assessment

Open Source is the future of software. It is free, high quality, and often the cutting edge of technology. But it needs to be managed. It needs to be managed because there are risks associated with using open source software.

Open source software could contain third-party intellectual property infringements, security risks, or licensing terms that are not what you expected. If there are bugs in the software, the community maintaining the software might not prioritize those bug fixes. And there are various interactions and dependencies between libraries that require careful version control should be used to ensure that your systems will continue to work.

 

This is not to say that you should not use open source software; it’s hardly a choice anymore. It just means that open source software requires management that is not required with commercially supported software you have used in the past.

Does your open source software management program address all the risks?

OpenTeams can tell you if your open source program is up to the task. Our experts have worked with many companies in many industries and have helped them build the management programs that will allow them to use open source software, trouble-free.
