Open Source Licensing Risk Management

Open Source Licensing Risk Management

Using open source software in enterprise applications can be risky. Without quality assurance or on-call technical support, those applications are more likely to malfunction and cost you invaluable time. That could also mean lost revenue, disappointed customers, and a tarnished reputation. Even worse, licensing open source components improperly can result in costly and embarrassing legal battles.

That’s why companies like Cisco, HP, Bank of America and NASA trust ActiveState’s solutions for Perl, Python and Tcl.

Avoid Business Meltdowns

More and more developers are using Perl, Python and Tcl to power applications that run critical processes. This code is the core or the glue of your mission-critical and business-critical applications.

ActiveState Enterprise and Business solutions provide enterprise-ready programming language solutions and commercial-grade technical support for businesses that need fail-safe Perl, Python and Tcl. Because if the core or the glue of your systems are down, that could cost your business in lost revenue and a damaged reputation.

Trust ActiveState’s guaranteed technical support, regular fixes, and best practices guidance to ensure you’re using the most secure, high-performance language distributions in your applications. Plus, development teams have saved days—even months—of developer time by eliminating the time it takes to build, test and maintain their own language distributions.
