White Source, the leading provider of SaaS Open Source Lifecycle Management solutions, hosts a free webinar November 13, "Open Source Legal Blues: Do You Comply? Understanding and Reducing Open Source License Risks". Register today!
In today's business climate, using open source (OSS) components as part of the development of new products is imperative. It is becoming increasingly important to have clear visibility of the open source used by your development team, to be able to make informed decisions and take actions in real time and not after the fact. Reducing OSS risk is the key to software business success.
This free webinar will cover:
- Open source legal, business, and technical risks
- How to effectively manage the open source adoption process, review procedures, and compliance requirements
- How to do so without impacting development and release schedules, and without spending a small fortune
The session will feature Mr. Haim Ravia, renowned IP legal expert with Pearl Cohen Zedek Latzer, and Mr. Rami Sass, White Source CEO. Mr. Ravia, a leading international legal expert, specializing in intellectual property strategy, will introduce the legal risks associated with OSS, and will discuss how these issues can interfere with software release cycles, business partnerships, and acquisitions. Mr. Sass will provide an overview of the White Source cloud-based SaaS solution and will demonstrate how you can easily and affordably manage your open source life-cycle, evaluate potential problems early on, and quickly reduce risks.
With White Source, new open source components are automatically detected when first used, and classified by their license type and risk profile. This allows the organization to immediately address the respective risks and license requirements, rather than wait until release time and risk substantial development effort and unnecessary delays. White Source integrates seamlessly and can automatically enforce organizational open source policy with leading development tools such as Apache maven, Apache Ant, Jenkins, JetBrains TeamCity, RedHat OpenShift, CloudBees and JFrog Artifactory.
