The Invisible Software Supply Chain and Open Source Compliance
Software is often "invisible," making it difficult to track and control, and is rarely subject to the rigorous supply chain management systems employed for hardware. The lack of visibility and control, combined with the ease of embedding software components with a simple "copy and paste," presents significant challenges to ensuring compliance and creates management risks. In fact, Gartner Group reports that by 2014, 50% of Global 2000 organizations will experience technology, cost and challenges due to a lack of open source governance. As the use of open source software by development organizations grows both inside the enterprise and outside (by outsourcers and suppliers), gaining control of your company's software supply chain is now a management priority.
Attendees of this webinar will learn:
- What a software supply chain is
- What the compliance challenges are with open source software
- How to protect your company
- The role of standards like SPDX
