Black Duck Software, the leader in open source software knowledge, adoption and governance, today reported significant results for the first quarter of 2012. The company announced that this period was the most successful first quarter in company history, enabling it to sustain its 34 percent compound annual growth rate (CAGR). This success underscores growing enterprise demand for open source software (OSS), the need for solutions to manage OSS use and governance, and the adoption of open source methods and technologies by several industry alliances.

Mobility is redefining how employees and customers interact with a company's products, applications and services. To address this technological and market shift, innovative IT organizations must leverage an abundance of resources, including open source components, development frameworks and open web technologies. Additionally, enterprises are embracing collaboration and creating their own developer ecosystems as a core element of their IT strategy.  Join Jeffrey Hammond, Principal Analyst, Forrester Research, and Black Duck Software to learn how to leverage these important trends, technologies and development strategies.

A survey of the European automotive industry revealed widespread use of free and open source software (FOSS) but pointed to gaps in the FOSS governance and software asset management processes across software supply chains.
