Palamida and Innoopract To Offer Open Source Solution For Eclipse

Partnership To Maximize User Investments In Eclipse And Ensure Software Transparency In Open Source Distribution

Palamida, a provider of software assurance management products and audit services, announced a partnership with Innoopract, a provider of Eclipse-based add-on tools, consulting, support, training and open source distribution solutions.

With their combined technology and service offerings, Palamida and Innoopract accelerate the adoption of open source in the enterprise. Palamida and its partners perform software code audits using Palamida’s leading IP Amplifier technology and the industry-leading compliance library of third-party software, to accurately assess the origin of each client’s software code. The software code audit report is a complete, accurate assessment of open source and third-party code, pinpointing specific high-risk areas of company code against due diligence criteria to identify remediation issues. Organizations seeking to adopt open source while respecting intellectual property rights can now use the combined Innoopract/Palamida solution to ensure they are meeting compliance requirements.

For organizations using open source, it is critical that a deliberate and methodical process for managing intellectual property compliance is part of the software development process. By taking advantage of the companies’ combined services, organizations can be fully prepared to extend their Eclipse development environment without violating copyright or intellectual property rights.

“Open source adoption is accelerating at an incredible rate this year,” said Susanna Kass, Executive Vice President and COO of Palamida. “With Innoopract’s outstanding track record in Eclipse project distribution and Ajax development tools, this strategic partnership can help enterprise software and system vendors, as well as corporate users, achieve software transparency and effectively and safely embrace the benefits of open source software development.”

“The Palamida and Innoopract partnership provides a truly complete solution for managing software risks and identifying intellectual property issues,” said Eric von der Heyden, Managing Director of Innoopract. “Not only is Innoopract distributing and providing services for industry-leading Eclipse open source deployments, but we also are taking steps to assure our customers that our products have been rigorously checked for copy-left, viral and third-party code. Combining Palamida’s comprehensive software transparency solutions with Innoopract’s Eclipse management and support solutions is strategic to our customers’ ability to confidently incorporate open source into their Eclipse-based development environment.”
