Maintaining open source license compliance in an enterprise development and production environment can sometimes be a complex task. Applications can pull from multiple open source projects, each with their own licensing requirements and obligations.
That’s where the Open Logic Exchange (OLEX) comes into play with a hosted Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solution to the challenge of open source source license compliance. OLEX has been in market since 2007 and is now being expanded with new collaboration features to help make it easier to identify and understand open source license obligations.
“What we’ve learned over the last several years is that open source compliance is not a one person game,” Kim Weins, senior vice president of OpenLogic told InternetNews.com. “Compliance involves a whole set of people throughout the enterprise that are involved in understanding what open source they are using and ensuring they are meeting the open source license obligations.”
