Open Source Software  Management​

 ​​​​​​​​​Our open source strategy consulting practice can help your organization devise custom strategies around open source technologies and methods to achieve business and technology goals. Our consulting team has engaged with hundreds
of organizations, providing comprehensive strategies for industry-leading technology suppliers and enterprise IT organizations.

Professional open source management helps you realize maximum benefit from open source software while addressing legal, security and operational risks. We've  worked with hundreds of companies and are uniquely qualified to help your organization develop and implement an effective open source software management program.

Open Source Security

Open source, while enjoying a well-deserved reputation for security and stability, still presents security risks from latent vulnerabilities and configuration issues.  The Open Source Sense security practices help you understand and quantify real world risk from unmanaged vulnerabilities, determine and prioritize needed remediation actions, and build open source security policy and processes harmonized with your organizations broader security practices.

Many companies seek to centralize open source software management as they increasingly integrate, deploy and also redistribute open source software. Let us help you create and launch your Open Source Program Office  with a clear mission, optimal resourcing, sensible metrics ​and a plan for success!
