Open Source Usage Practices Survey: Last Chance to Participate

WhiteSource, a leading provider of automated tools for open-source license compliance and security risk management announces that its annual “Open Source Usage Practices Survey??? will close on March 31. WhiteSource will hold a free webinar on April 29, where survey results will be shared.
What: Developers routinely use open source components to boost productivity and improve quality of their code. However, just like with any third-party code, open source usage must be properly managed. The Open Source Usage Practices Survey by WhiteSource examines how companies manage open source with regard to license risks and compliance, as well as security vulnerability management.
This survey is one of several WhiteSource studies aimed at fostering proper management of open source usage.
Who: The survey is particularly relevant for R&D managers, as well as information security, legal and compliance professionals.
The answers are kept completely anonymous, and WhiteSource only presents aggregated statistics.
All participants will receive a copy of the full report. One respondent will be selected to win an Apple iPad mini.
WhiteSource invites everyone to attend a free webinar where results will be presented and explained.
When: The Open Source Usage Practices Survey is open to the general public until March 31, 2014. Results will be presented during a webinar on April 29, 2014 at 9:30 am PDT, by WhiteSource CEO, Rami Sass.
