OpenLogic Launches New Code Scanning Module

Broomfield, Colorado-based OpenLogic, a developer of enterprise open source management software, said today that it has launched a new module for scanning for open source licenses. The firm said its new Source Code Scanning and License Compliance module connects with its OLEX Enterprise Edition software, and helps companies to identify the open source code being used by their applications. Pricing on the new module was not announced. The new tool addresses the issues that commercial companies have in using open source, which in many cases restricts or significantly impacts the development of commercial products.
