State Of Art Continuous Compliance – An Overview

Time: 17:00 - 18:00
Talk: Do 7.4


Compliance to regulatory, legal, contractual and company policies is a fundamental requirement of todays software. Being not compliant exposes you to risks and – in case – may render you incapable of delivering on schedule.
Why not continuously check compliance of your software? What are the general requirements? What tools exist and what are initiatives like ClearlyDefined and OpenChain all about?
We give an overview on the state of art of continuous compliance and elaborate on Compliance-By-Design as paradigm for software development.

Target Audience: Architects, Developers, Product Managers, Development Leaders, CEOs
Prerequisites: None
Level: Introductory

Extended Abstract
The software development industry, in particular in Germany, is generally not aware of the impact that can be caused by software not being compliant.
With the session we would like to contribute to the understanding of compliance in the software industry and make the audience aware of the potential risks and best practices to avoid these.
In general, compliance to regulatory, legal, contractual and company policies is not an option; it is a must.
The OpenChain Project is an initiative of the Linux Foundation.
ClearlyDefined is an incubator project of the Open Source Initiative.
