Managing Risk in Component Based Development

 

Title:

Managing Risk in Component Based Development – Best Practice Considerations to Kick-Start your Component Management Initiative

Abstract:

Usage of Java components to build applications has grown exponentially. Most applications are now composed primarily of components - 80 - 90% of an application consists of components.
Many of these components are open source components that are housed in the Central Repository, the defacto standard used by open source project teams to distribute their binaries. Recent research shows some interesting trends:

  • 8 billion components were downloaded from Central in the last 12 months.
  • 53% of survey respondents  are standardizing on an open source development infrastructure stack.
  • 76% of large organizations have no control over what components are being used in software development projects


Although components help improve developer productivity so that applications can be delivered faster, if components are not managed effectively, security, licensing, and quality issues can put your organization at risk. Industry analysts and standards efforts recognize managing components as a key requirement for modern development efforts. Gartner addresses the need to manage components as part of an overall software supply chain approach:


"IT supply chain integrity issues are expanding from hardware into software and information. They are growing more complex as IT systems are assembled from a large number of geographically diverse providers, and, now of mainstream concern to enterprise IT." - Ray Valdes, research vice president at Gartner.


Join us as we introduce key concepts for managing and exploiting these components. We'll discuss the current state of application development market, the promise and challenge of components, and we'll provide you with a set of best practice considerations to kick-start your component management initiative."
