Black Duck Software, the leading global provider of products and services for accelerating software development through the managed use of open source software, today announced Black Duck Code Sight™ as part of its Code Search Initiative designed to empower developers and enterprises by providing comprehensive code search capability as part of the Black Duck Suite. The search technology comes from Black Duck Koders.com, the leading open source code search site.

Open source software (OSS) has garnered interest from commercial software developers and enterprise IT managers as a way to cut costs, increase efficiency and speed time-to-market, but many remain unsure how to integrate and manage open source deployed in their applications and systems.

Black Duck Software, the leading global provider of products and services for accelerating software development through the managed use of open source software, has reviewed thousands of successful OSS deployments and developed a five-point checklist that can be used by software companies, where concerns about intellectual property and licensing risk can inhibit OSS adoption, and enterprise IT executives, where risk to infrastructure and operations are obstacles to deployment of OSS code.
