Streamline the development process

Remove obstacles that slow down application development.

  • Improve decision making with contextually relevant, maintainer-originated data made available directly in the software development lifecycle
  • Define a repository of pre-vetted, approved open source components that reduces duplicative work and accelerates development
  • Reduce time to approve new components with a streamlined process integrated into your existing workflow

Improve open source software supply chain health and security

Identify and remove security, maintenance, and licensing-related risk.

  • Analyze and document an always-up-to-date software bill of materials (SBOM)
  • Assess application risk against open source components evaluated by Tidelift
  • Design and implement a centralized approach to evaluating and curating open source components
  • Codify and enforce consistent standards and policies across the organization

track dependencies with custom catalogs

Custom catalogs

Combine Tidelift standards with organizational policies to create a repository of curated, tracked, and managed open source components. Custom catalogs enable tracking of internal “inner source” dependencies as well.

"Tidelift is positioned as the single source of content for supported technologies so enterprises can build and manage their software using known-good OSS components."
