Open source and third-party packages/components live at the heart of high velocity software development organizations.  Today, an average of 106 packages / components comprise 80 - 90% of a modern application, yet few organizations have visibility into what components are used where. Use of known defective components leads to quality and security issues within applications. Wh... (more)

Why?  After 3,000 DevOps professionals attended our webinar on "Continuous Integration using Docker" discussing just one reference architecture example, we recognized there was a strong interest in the c...
