Black Duck Brings Software Compliance Management to the Eclipse Platform

Source: BusinessWire.com


Black Duck Software, the leading provider of software compliance management solutions, today announced the release of a plug-in that will integrate the company's innovative protexIP(TM) suite with the popular, open Eclipse Platform. By automating key intellectual property (IP) management and license compliance functions and integrating them within the extensible Eclipse interactive development environment, Black Duck lets development teams improve their productivity through more effective use of open source code and other licensed software components, and at the same time reduce licensing-related business risks.

"The move toward component-based development and the exploding use of open source software have made it increasingly difficult for developers to attest to the origins and obligations associated with their mixed-IP software projects," said Palle Pedersen, CTO of Black Duck Software. "By integrating our protexIP system with the Eclipse Platform, we help make the developer's life easier by managing this complexity to avoid costly IP-related product delays and accelerate the software development process."

Black Duck's protexIP software compliance management system brings developers, lawyers, and business decision-makers together within an automated system that lets development teams identify and control what components are used within their code base and automate the compliance process across their organization to support business policies.
