    Taylor Udell, Director of Product Marketing at FOSSA
    Managing your open source program is all about improving efficiency and decreasing risk. Determining what packages to leverage, when developers should contribute, and what internal projects you may want to publish are all strategic business decisions. An Open Source Program Office (OSPO) helps to define your open source management strategy while considering the implications of open source components on product viability, competitiveness, resources, security and the risk profile of your company.

    In this webinar you will learn:
    ●Things to know when evaluating your need for an OSPO
    ●Areas managed by an OSPO
    ●Roles key to an OSPO's success
    ●The key pillars of a successful OSPO
    ●A list of resources to read if you want to build an OSPO

    FOSSA Director of Product Marketing Taylor Udell will share how getting the most from open source is not about how much code is deployed, but rather how about how developing the right open source management strategy can impact business goals, revenue, risk, recruiting and reputation. Move away from tactical, manual OSS management and into a strategic, holistic OSPO program that serves the needs of the company, your customers and your developers.
Be Continuous. Automate the Risk out of Your Open Source.
