Today, with the wide availability of millions of open source application development components, many enterprises are producing more software than ever, for both internal and customer consumption.
Yet many are finding that as their organizations become software producers, they have yet to develop mature best practices around how to deliver custom applications safely and securely.
IDC Research Director Jim Mercer shares insights from recent IDC research into how organizations can safely and effectively use open source for building applications. He covers how organizations should think about:
Setting up good governance and policies around managing open source use
Addressing security issues
Recent government and regulatory actions that impact software developers
Legal, privacy, ethics and social liability implications
Tactics and technologies that can help organizations ensure they deliver trusted software
Common places where organizations get tripped up and risks that need to be managed
Jim is joined by Tidelift CEO Donald Fischer for discussion, commentary, and Q&A.
