Risk mitigation that fits an enterprise-sized organization, pursuing scalability

As companies with mature Open Source management practices have largely been able to gain adequate control and visibility of license/IP risks as well as security risks, they have been facing many technical risks:

  • Use of OSS with poor project health: excessively high numbers of issues/bugs, poor project management, missing documentation, lack of responsiveness to questions or issues
  • Poor fitness for purpose: OSS with poor performance, scalability, and stability
  • Use of out-of-date forks of a mainstream project
  • Lack of code stability or API backward compatibility that makes upgrading to address issues difficult

Technical risk, often overseen, can elevate your competitive edge by increasing efficiency in your software development lifecycle. Risk mitigation should identify all types of risk, both declared and undeclared, that fits an enterprise organizational structure.

Declared vs. undeclared code: a huge blind spot

On top of the potential risks besides security, the status quo relies on declared open source components to manage risk. This business practice results in a huge blind spot–the undeclared open source components that cannot easily be identified but present the same risks. Undeclared components include, for example:

  • Hidden plagiarized code
  • Forgotten “old” code
  • C/C++ and similar projects
  • Partial file/component code
