Software is often "invisible," making it difficult to track and control. As a result, it is rarely subject to the rigorous supply chain management systems employed for hardware. But as open source software becomes more ubiquitous in all industries, it is more important than ever to track and manage what'€™s used, and gain the right level of visibility and control to mitigate potential risks. This presentation by Andrew Aitken - Senior Vice President of Olliance Consulting, will help senior development managers, business executives and supply chain managers, along with anyone interested in broader open source use in the supply chain, learn to gain control of the software supply chain by discussing:

  • How to protect your company by gaining visibility into code
  • The role of standardized tools such as SPDX
  • Real world examples of how to best manage compliance 
  • Solutions for managing Linux, specifically, along with other OSS in the supply chain
