Black Duck Software Announces Enterprise Code Search Initiative for the Black Duck Suite

Details Rollout for Enterprise Code Search

WALTHAM, MA -- (Marketwire) -- 12/15/09 -- Black Duck Software, the leading global provider of products and services for accelerating software development through the managed use of open source software, today announced Black Duck Code Sight(TM) as part of its Code Search Initiative designed to empower developers and enterprises by providing comprehensive code search capability as part of the Black Duck Suite. The search technology comes from Black Duck Koders.com, the leading open source code search site.

The code search initiative has three phases: expansion of open source code available at Koders.com; release of Black Duck Code Sight Enterprise Edition and Free Edition for enterprise code search, and an open integration framework initiative for community expansion of integrations with source code management systems.

Available today, Koders.com, the free code search web site serving tens of thousands of unique visitors per day, has been expanded to now access over 2.5 billion lines of open source code. Black Duck has increased the code freely available via Koders.com by 400 percent since acquiring the site in 2008.

The company also plans a Q1 2010 addition to its Black Duck Suite: Black Duck Code Sight, an enterprise code search capability. Based on the proven scalable search technology behind Koders.com, Code Sight powers a number of public sites including the corporate developer network of one of the largest technology companies in the world. Code Sight expands the current capability of the Black Duck Suite beyond searching metadata associated with open source projects, with the addition of source code search to greatly enhance developer productivity and code quality.

Code Sight will index and make software searchable across multiple source code repositories for local or geographically distributed development teams. With this addition, the Black Duck Suite will provide comprehensive code search -- open source component metadata as well as an organization's internal source code -- that can increase developer productivity by finding code quickly, locating and tracking down bugs faster, and reducing redundant development. Code Sight will integrate securely and seamlessly with a customer's existing source code management systems and developer workflows.

"With the addition of Code Sight, the Black Duck Suite will help developers realize even greater productivity gains and further accelerate software development," said Tim Yeaton, CEO and President, Black Duck Software. "By enabling the search of both metadata and source code, we are giving developers more powerful ways to find the code they need, when they need it, in compliance with company policies, all the while giving them up-to-date version, license and security data about that code. It's a powerful suite of tools that will enable developers to be more agile and productive, and provide competitive advantage to their companies."

Also in Q1, Black Duck will release Code Sight Free Edition, a free version of the enterprise code search product designed to be used by teams of developers and community projects. Code Sight Free Edition will be fully functional with capacity for up to five million lines of code. Code Sight Free Edition can be upgraded to Code Sight Enterprise Edition. Developers interested in being notified about the availability of the free or enterprise version can register at: www.blackducksoftware.com/code-sight

To enrich its code search offerings, in Q1 Black Duck will launch an open integration framework initiative to enable customers and partners to expand source code repository integration with Code Sight. Code Sight comes with built-in integration for IBM Rational ClearCase, Subversion, Git, Microsoft Team Foundation Server and other open source and commercial source code management systems. The addition of the open framework initiative will enable community-led expansion of additional source code repositories.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository.

Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world. But cell networks such as 2G, 3G and LTE consume lots of power and were designed for connecting people. They are not optimized for low- or battery-powered devices or for IoT applications with infrequently transmitted data. Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
