Open Source @ SAP Ecosystem is surely a great and positve trend.
But a proper enterprise open source management is needed!

  • less than 50% of  (larger) IT orgs have effective open-source governance (Gartner)
  • much less of the smaller + medium size orgs
  • those with open source reporting only know aprox. 45% of used open source components
  • almost ALL audits finds open source (i.e. in M&A or OEM due diligence)
  • >90% finds unknown or unclear open source code licenses
  • in average 100+ unique open source components in each application
  • but sometimes 1.000s or even 10.000s

Open Source Best Practice is:

  • Version Control = which versions are used + how old are they?
  • License Control = which licenses are used + how does this match with company policies?
  • Security Control = which components may have which vulnerabilities?
