compliance, licensing, nexb, open source, open source licenses, open source technology, software development
As the consumption of open source technologies is skyrocketing, one of the biggest yet most underrated challenges are licence companies. Organizations often use a mix of open source technologies that are released under different open source licences. Sometimes these licences are compatible with each other and sometimes not. Additionally, lack of adherence to the licence may lead to legal actions. No one wants to be at the receiving end of the SFC (Software Freedom Conservancy) or the SFLC (Software Freedom Law Center).

Containers got rid of all that duplication of the guest OS. It provided the process level isolation. It’s more lightweight and agile. Serverless or ‘Functions as a Services’ (FaaS) is even more exciting because you're now able to take code functions and run them at the granular level. All of the underlying machinery of having containers being spun up using communities is hidden behind the scene. That’s why ‘FaaS’ is becoming so popular.
