The world runs on Open Source Software (OSS) – from consumer electronics, household appliances and medical technology, to automobiles and production lines to enterprise IT and mobile services. Especially emerging technologies such as Cloud Computing, Internet of Things, Blockchain, Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Robot Process Automation (RPA) are massively built on Open Source Software.
You can only keep pace with the progressive digitalisation of products and services and the increasing importance of disruptive technologies with an effective and efficient Open Source Software management. By this you empower but also govern the use, creation and contribution of OSS.
“For digitalisation and keeping pace with latest developments of services and products mature enablement and compliance of Open Source Software is key to survive! Our mission is to shape, enrich and enable your digital future through Open Source Software!”
Through the targeted use of OSS you can save costs and development capacities, at the same time participate in the latest developments, help set standards and become less dependent on software manufacturers. It is, however, important to ensure open source compliance for software licenses to avoid unintentional license violations which could lead to financial, continuity and reputational risks.
Have you seized the opportunities that Open Source Software offers your company and adequately mitigated the risks? Do you have the OSS compliance of your (software) suppliers under control?
