Black Duck

Black Duck Software is the leading global provider of strategy, products and services for enabling enterprise scale adoption of free and open source software (FOSS). With approximately 80 percent market share, a fast-growing customer base, and a commitment to building community, we see the future of software development clearly - and it revolves around the effective and informed use of FOSS. Our business has two elements: we’re a commercial software company developing and delivering end-to-end services and solutions to enable FOSS adoption and use by software development teams, and we’re also citizens in and active supporters and facilitators of the larger community. This balanced perspective allows Black Duck to help its customers increase their pace of innovation and development flexibility by capitalizing on the significant strategic, technological and financial benefits of selecting and using FOSS components, and implementation “best practices”. Organizations trust Black Duck for business strategy and tools to support the complete lifecycle management of FOSS in their development processes; and developers seek us out as the trusted source of FOSS knowledge through our Ohloh.net and Koders.com websites.
