"When Black Duck Software started in the early 2000s,
its mission was to reassure companies that there was no real legal
risk in using open-source software, despite SCO crying wolf. That
was then. This is now. Today, Black Duck is becoming a one-stop,
open-source business advisor for organizations, government bodies,
and businesses. The company took a big step forward in doing this
by acquiring The Olliance Group, a privately-held, open-source
business and strategy consulting firm.
"This acquisition, Black Duck's third in a matter of months,
expands the company's offerings to include open-source business and
strategy consulting services to help its enterprise IT clients
capitalize on the significant strategic, technological, and
financial benefits of open-source software."
