ActiveState Eyes Open Source Language
February 22, 2019
introduced a methodology for successfully leveraging open source
languages with its Open Source Language Automation blueprint. Comprised
of four phases, this blueprint aims to provide the industry with
guidelines to decrease the costs and risks of managing open source
ActiveState has been an open source language leader for more than 20
years and has learned the challenges faced by management and developers
with open source languages. And these challenges are exacerbated with
polyglot or multilingual environments. The documented four-phase
methodology to implement Open Source Language Automation establishes a
systematic and automated workflow that decreases costs and risks of
managing open source languages.
The four phases and their resulting outcomes are:
Open Source Language Policies: Programmatically enforce open source
language policies to ensure compliance against entire organization.
•Centralize Open Source Language
Dependencies: Track languages and packages across DevOps to assess open
•Automate Open Source Language
Builds: Reduce vulnerabilities and increase application quality.
•Deploy and Manage Open Source
Language Artifacts: Automatically update all of your test, stage and
production servers with the appropriate and latest open source language
Bart Copeland, president and CEO, ActiveState: "We are dedicated to
helping the industry realize the true value of working with open source
languages. We believe you should be able to track when and where your
applications were vulnerable and respond with automatic enforcement of
your open source language policies. Management should gain security and
stability and your development teams should attain greater velocity."
