Safely and Effectively Building Software Applications with Open Source

By: Jim MercerResearch Director, DevOps & DevSecOps

On-line Presentation


This IDC Market Presentation examines why and how modern digital enterprises are starting to track and manage internal repositories of open source components. DevOps teams are increasingly using a composite approach toward application development that relies upon open source software. These teams are benefiting from the handiwork of the open source community, speeding up application development and innovation but may also be exposing themselves to security vulnerabilities embedded within the open source packages.

"Many organizations are beginning to realize that they need to take a more intentional approach toward managing their open source software," said Jim Mercer, research director, IDC's DevOps and DevSecOps. "These organizations are leveraging tools, such as software composition analysis (SCA) and artifact repositories, to create internally curated repositories of open source software that provide a trusted place for developers to access open source packages."
