The phrase 'Open Bank’ means nothing to consumers - and probably never will
But the whole Open Bank endeavour will enable innovative new services, delivered by more competitive suppliers - meaning that consumers will be able to choose from products and services that are actually relevant to them and which work in today's (and tomorrow's) world
We'll discuss how to encourage consumers to explore and embrace the new Open Bank world

Enterprises can gain business benefit from emerging digital computing and communications technologies. Their business departments want to experiment with new solutions and to develop and deploy them rapidly. They often want to use multiple technologies in combination. But they are faced with a mass of product-specific and technology-specific standards that make it hard to use, and harder still to integrate, different technologies.
Open Platform 3.0 is a standard for platforms. It applies to platforms that give users access to digital technologies. It is being developed by The Open Group. The presentation will explain why Open Platform 3.0 is needed, how it is developing, and how it will impact cloud networks.

Increasingly, organizations worldwide are implementing open source security and license risk assessment capabilities early in the software development lifecycle when the cost to remediate issues is lowest. This webinar will demonstrate Black Duck Hub’s effectiveness in providing comprehensive risk assessments when used in combination with our Eclipse IDE plugin, Build Tool, and CI Tool integrations. Additionally, we'll review valuable new features in Black Duck Hub 3.5.
You’ll also learn:
- How to improve the accuracy of your open source inventory by leverage open source dependency discovery techniques for build tools and package managers
- Options for incorporating Hub scanning into your Continuous Integration environments
- How to track remediation tasks using the Hub-Jira integration
- How to streamline your component review process
- Use cases for scanning binary repositories such as Artifactory
The next wave of open source compliance challenges is upon us. Historically, enforcement has been a community based effort with an emphasis on “doing the right thing”. In recent years, however, we have seen the emergence of private enforcement and enforcement driven by entities and individuals for purposes of economic gain. In some cases these actions are to enforce legitimate interests arising from, for instance, dual licensing models. In other cases, copyright “trolls” are pressing an agenda. In this webinar, Mark Radcliffe will review some of the current litigation trends, evaluate how the different elements of the open source community are reacting to these trends and offer insights and strategies for avoiding the cross-hairs. This includes taking a closer look at open source cases litigated in 2016 in Germany, including the following questions:
- Are we experiencing a shift in jurisprudence?
- What should users and developers of open source software do to protect themselves?
- What's the contribution of the open source community?
Increase security effectiveness and maintain dev agility
Three certainties in 2017: organizations worldwide will continue to increase their use of open source software; new open source security vulnerabilities will be discovered; exploits of open source vulnerabilities will occur.
With dev teams under constant pressure to accelerate application delivery and with security resources often scarce, organizations need more effective ways to determine which open source vulnerabilities to fix first and the options available to reduce risk during remediation.
Join Black Duck VP of Security Strategy Mike Pittenger as he discusses strategies and emerging best practices for risk-ranking open source vulnerabilities. He will cover:
- the most important considerations in prioritizing open source security issues
- ways to determine the risk associated with a discovered open source vulnerability
- options for dealing with open source security vulnerabilities beyond simply replacing the component

Companies are constantly seeking ways to ensure their application code is secure and effectively managed. For example, M&A acquirers conduct one-time code audits on companies they are buying to avoid legal, operational or security pitfalls. Other organizations are proactive, using an an ongoing solution to make sure their application code is secure and well managed on a day-to-day basis. Increasingly, many companies are opting to use both approaches.
Join Bob Genshaft, Director Strategic Programs at Wolters Kluwer, and Black Duck's VP and General Manager On-Demand Audits Phil Odence for a discussion that will address key open source security and management questions:
· When is it appropriate to conduct an audit?
· When should your company consider an ongoing solution?
· What are the benefits of doing both?
Open Source software is the foundation for application development today and its use is growing rapidly worldwide because of the development cost reductions and innovation it enables. Black Duck discovers open source in every application it analyzes and finds finds that 35% of the average commercial software application is open source. Home-grown applications typically contain 50% or more open source.
The dramatic growth in open source use has been accompanied by an array of security and management challenges related to a lack of visibility into and control of the open source in use. Leading organizations are aggressively pursuing ways to continue to increase their use of open source and do so without compromising effective security or management.
This webinar will present findings from Black Duck's Center for Open Source Research examining open source use, risks, and benefits. Black Duck CMO Bob Canaway will discuss the latest open source threats, usage patterns, governance, and the changing security and management needs as open source expands across the cloud, the Internet of Things, and the digital landscape.
During our next customer webinar, we’ll share expert tips and best practices on how to extract maximum value from the latest features available in Black Duck Hub. The new integrations and features help improve both open source security and compliance. You’ll learn how to:
•Track remediation tasks using the new Hub-Jira integration
•Leverage new open source discovery techniques for Ruby Gems and Node.js as well as build integrations for Maven/Gradle to improve the accuracy of your open source inventory
•Customize your notices file so that all open source is properly attributed
•Leverage the new Hub-Email Extension to push notifications via email
•Incorporate Hub scanning into your Jenkins pipeline projects

Businesses and governments worldwide increasingly rely on open source software to reduce development costs, get to market faster, and innovate. Despite its ubiquity, there are many management and security challenges that have accompanied the explosive growth in open source usage. Most organizations don’t know how much open source is in their applications or where it is in their code base. There is considerable confusion and misinformation about the what strategies and tools are needed to identify known open source vulnerabilities in the application code and assure the secure use of open source.
Please join Black Duck's VP of Security Strategy Mike Pittenger as he unpacks the common myths and misperceptions surrounding open source use and learn best practices to secure and manage your open source, reduce risk from security vulnerabilities and increase efficiency within your SDLC.
Open source risk is a significant issue for both buyers and sellers in M&A transactions. Although open source comprises 30-50% of the code in an average application, results from Black Duck open source audits are eye-opening: sellers rarely know what open source they’re using and there are often serious risks associated with open source components in code assets.
In this webinar, Jim Markwith, a technology attorney who handles complex IP licensing transactions, and has been involved in scores of M&A deals, will discuss the top five open source issues that impact transactions. He will provide in-depth descriptions of the challenges encountered and their impact on the transaction, punctuating the presentation with insightful stories from the M&A trenches.
