Enterprises benefit from the adoption of open source, but most are reluctant to use projects with no declared license. Recent research has revealed that 40% of OSS projects have no declared license; and of this significant number, 42% actually contain embedded licenses, which can be difficult to find, let alone review, without the proper tools. Imagine the potential value and productivity that could be unleashed if all open source projects were accessible to enterprises – Black Duck has estimated this opportunity at up to $59B. But how do enterprises evaluate projects without easily identifiable licenses? This session will discuss the importance of and methods to discover embedded licenses. Odence will provide market sizing for projects with embedded licenses and discuss the opportunity to capture value from projects which might otherwise be off-limits to enterprises.
