A look inside KPMG’s managed services solutions to address the growing need to manage and secure open source across industries.

KPMG Open Source Software (OSS) forms the backbone of the software supply chain. According to Gartner more than 95 percent of organizations utilize OSS, thereby creating an increased risk related to effective and safe management of license compliance and security vulnerabilities. The burden falls upon the IT, legal, and software development teams to administer scanning tools, train staff, define policies, and maintain accurate Software Bill of Materials (BoM) across product lines. Challenges in effective management of these outputs has encouraged a number of organizations to consider a managed services approach, whereby a team of OSS experts can help alleviate the operational challenges while allowing IT, legal, and development teams to focus on core value generating tasks.

In this webinar, we will discuss using Flexera’s FlexNet Code Insight scanning tool as a part of an overall managed services solution.
