Introducing the OSPO Alliance 


The OSPO Alliance is a collective initiated by European non-profits dedicated to fostering excellence in Open Source software management. It serves as a platform for sharing experiences, tools, and best practices to professionalize Open Source management. The Alliance champions the establishment of Open Source Program Offices (OSPOs) in organizations to guide Open Source strategies and ensure readiness, thus supporting the broader adoption and professional management of Open Source software. 



Our Contribution to the OSPO Alliance 


SCANOSS is 100% Free and Open Source, empowering companies of ALL sizes to manage their Open Source Software in line with best practices.  Gone are the high costs that once obstructed understanding your software's composition, finally. Our technology automates management processes and provides actionable intelligence to support best practices, making OSS management more accessible, efficient, and effective for organizations. Our participation underscores our commitment to advancing the professional management of Open Source software and contributing to the OSPO Alliance's mission. 



Why Joining the OSPO Alliance Matters to Us
