Author: Hyoun Park
Key Stakeholders: CIO, Enterprise Strategists, Enterprise Architects, Software Asset Managers, Software Developers, Open Source Maintainers
Why It Matters: As the average enterprise now uses over 400 open-source components and open source makes up over 70% of the enterprise codebase, IT organizations must organize and govern their open source portfolios to improve security, governance, and total cost of ownership management.
Key Takeaway: By providing enterprises both with custom catalogs and use-specific catalogs, Tidelift will solve a fundamental problem that IT departments have in corralling open source component usage and determining which production components require maintenance.
