Managing the Software Supply Chain in Embedded, Automotive and Financial Services Industries and the Latest Update on SPDX - Boris Geller, Black Duck Software

Open source software (OSS) is used across a number of industries to develop systems ranging from global IT platforms to embedded apps running on smart devices. With the success and broad adoption of OSS, it became a critical component of increasingly complex ecosystems and needs to be proactively managed.  With over 550,000 open source projects available on the web, complexity arises at many stages of development and includes making good choices from the abundance of projects available, evaluating and managing open source licenses and the associated obligations, ensuring compliance with company policies and licensing obligations, and efficiently conveying software component information throughout the emerging software supply chains.

This session will focus on how to maximize the benefits of open source while ensuring compliance and efficient supply-chain participation in Mobile, Financial Services and Automotive ecosystems, including an update on development of SPDX standard.
