Software used within organizations is typically a mix of commercial, proprietary, and open-source software (OSS). There is often a lack of visibility in OSS inventory and lack of understanding of licensing requirements, which may leave organizations at risk of potential litigation. It’s important to start tracking your use of open source software to begin to understand vulnerabilities in your software use.
OSS Consultants (OSSC) works with companies of all sizes to understand the risks of using open source software and define a management strategy to address them. We do everything from a software scan and audit to building an entire open source program. We can outline licensing requirements to reduce the risk of litigation and increase compliance across your organization. We can work with key stakeholders to align the OSS strategy to the organization’s business goals and define simplified processes for developers for future use of open-source software.
