Managing risks in OSS adoption: the RISCOSS approach

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This presentation will report on the progresses of the RISCOSS methods and software. Supported by the FP7 program, RISCOSS develops a risk management-based methodology to facilitate the adoption of open source code into mainstream products and services. RISCOSS develops a method and a software platform that integrate the whole decision-making chain, from technology criteria to strategic concerns. Using advanced software engineering techniques and risk management methodologies, RISCOSS develops innovative tools and methods to identify, manage and mitigate risks of integrating third-party open source software. RISCOSS not only enables users to collect informed intelligence on open source components, but goes one step further by offering risk analysies that adapts to individual business situations. RISCOSS delivers a complete solution rather than a piecemeal approach to enable mainstream product developers to safely integrate open source software in their developments. Itself an open source project, RISCOSS is open to thirdparty contributions to help the platform grow in functionalities and make the transition to a fully marketable product or service.
