OpenLogic Announces Free Software to Inventory Installed Open Source Software

OpenLogic Discovery Helps Enterprises Gain Visibility Into Installed Open Source Software Across Multiple Platforms

BROOMFIELD, Colo., April 30 /PRNewswire/ -- OpenLogic, Inc., a provider of enterprise open source solutions encompassing hundreds of open source packages, today announced the release of OpenLogic Discovery, a free software tool that helps enterprises inventory the open source software installed on their computer systems. OpenLogic Discovery finds installed open source software on Windows, Linux and Solaris platforms in order to help enterprise customers manage their use of open source and remain compliant with internal policies.

Using OpenLogic Discovery's graphical or command line interfaces, users can quickly scan a computer for installed open source packages, including packages that were not explicitly installed but were bundled with other software. OpenLogic Discovery then provides a detailed inventory of the open source software identified on the system.

"Because open source is often downloaded by individual developers, most enterprises do not know what open source software is deployed in their organization," said Steve Grandchamp, CEO of OpenLogic. "Open source software has revolutionized corporate software development for the better, but there can be risks, costs and liabilities if the enterprise doesn't know what open source software is being deployed. OpenLogic Discovery enables companies to become more aware of open source usage in their IT environment and better manage some of those risks."

OpenLogic Discovery: -- Identifies installed open source software: OpenLogic Discovery provides both an easy to use graphical interface and a command line interface that lets you quickly scan a system for open source packages -- whether they were installed explicitly or bundled with other software products. OpenLogic Discovery identifies software by digital fingerprints, checking the fingerprints against a library of more than 5000 versions across 800 of the most commonly used open source packages. -- Finds open source software installed on multiple systems: OpenLogic Discovery's command line interface lets users integrate with existing software deployment or software asset management systems in order to inventory installed open source software on multiple systems. -- Creates easy to read reports: After scanning a system, OpenLogic Discovery provides a detailed inventory on all of the open source software that is found. An XML reporting format lets users aggregate results into a database or reporting system.

OpenLogic Discovery is scheduled to be available for free download in June from http://www.openlogic.com/.

Digital Transformation is much more than a buzzword. The radical shift to digital mechanisms for almost every process is evident across all industries and verticals. This is often especially true in financial services, where the legacy environment is many times unable to keep up with the rapidly shifting demands of the consumer. The constant pressure to provide complete, omnichannel delivery of customer-facing solutions to meet both regulatory and customer demands is putting enormous pressure on...
IoT is rapidly becoming mainstream as more and more investments are made into the platforms and technology. As this movement continues to expand and gain momentum it creates a massive wall of noise that can be difficult to sift through.

There are so many connected products already in place today with many hundreds more on the h...
