Overview: Open source software can empower developers, increase innovation and improve competitiveness, and its popularity is growing tremendously.

And as open source becomes more common, the need for governance increases dramatically. Without proper controls and processes to ensure compliance and reduce exposure, organizations will be at risk from technical and operational, regulatory, security, legal and brand factors. It is more important than ever to ensure developers use approved and supported code.
