White paper: Addressing the hidden cost of embedding open source software
The digital economy has created a need in the world of software development to find new ways of delivering innovative software solutions and software updates faster than ever before. Development teams are—understandably so—increasingly using open source software.
“…modern DevOps teams are now more predisposed to seek out OSS solutions to help them more rapidly deliver value to their end users,” says Jim Mercer, Research Director, DevOps and DevSecOps with IDC.*
This increase requires a more demanding need for Software Composition Analysis to detect security and license compliance issues.
