Black Duck Software Inc The ability to rapidly develop and deliver high-quality, secure software is critical to business success. To reduce cost and development time, software development teams often reuse components of internal, commercial and open source code. However, unmanaged reuse of code adds risk. It can compromise intellectual property rights and create unknown royalty obligations. It can also increase maintenance costs and introduce security vulnerabilities. Developers need information in order to make informed decisions about code reuse. Spreadsheets, string search tools and other home grown solutions are inadequate and divert development resources from building product value. For effective management of component reuse, an automated solution is needed. Black Duck products and services help organizations understand the composition and origin of their software assets. By enabling organizations to manage component reuse within the software development life cycle, companies can produce better quality software, reduce development and maintenance costs, and speed time-to-market.
