2018 Open Source Security and Risk Analysis

The Black Duck by Synopsys Open Source Security and Risk Analysis (OSSRA) report provides an in-depth look at the state of open source security, license compliance, and code-quality risk in commercial software. Each year, the Black Duck OnDemand audit services group conducts open source audits on thousands of applications for its customers—primarily in conjunction with merger and acquisition transactions. This year’s analysis was done by the Synopsys Center for Open Source Research & Innovation (COSRI) and examines findings from the anonymized data of over 1,100 commercial codebases audited in 2017. Industries represented in the report include the automotive, big data (predominantly artificial intelligence and business intelligence), cyber security, enterprise software, financial services, healthcare, Internet of Things (IoT), manufacturing, and mobile app markets.

The OSSRA report includes insights and recommendations intended to help organizations and security, risk, legal, development, and M&A teams better understand the open source security and license risk landscape as they strive to improve their application risk management processes.

How big of an effect do the words in your UI have on your users? Is the effect positive or negative, does it encourage engagement and continued use or cause frustration and dismissal? If the words in your product aren’t yet a priority, they should be. Words are four times more likely to convert a user to action than design elements, but the effort required to make even simple UI content changes prevents most companies from digging in and spending time on this critical driver of UX. That can change, when text strings are brought out of source code and into the light of day, or really, a single platform where non-technical team members can edit and update at will. Learn more about the impact the words in your UI have on UX and how a strings management platform can help you take product content to a new level.

Surviving Shortage Season with Findchips Pro

We’re in a major component shortage. The electronics industry is currently experiencing the most extreme component scarcity in over a decade. Lead times on passive components products have drastically increased as a result, with some suppliers quoting as far out as mid-next year. The shortage and its impact is so widespread that the Electronic Components Supply Network (ECSN) is urging electronics buyers to “review their outlook on lead times for components amid surging global demand and reports of allocation risks on certain products.”

This is a long-term sourcing challenge that industry analysts see lasting beyond the new year. Many organizations have responded to the supply deficit by double- and triple ordering components, but this has only aggravated the problem further. Suppliers are starting to allocate their inventory, resulting in massive lead times and increased prices.
