Lineaje, the California-headquartered software bill of materials (SBOM) specialist, has announced a partnership with Persistent Systems, an Indian-based financial technology company, to develop a platform for mitigating issues with open-source software.
The platform, which extends Persistent Software’s existing open-source software maintenance tooling, will integrate Lineaje’s machine learning algorithms which analyse open-source software bills of materials. The companies say that this will provide enhanced ability to identify and recommend remediating code to address issues in open-source software, as well as keeping an organisation’s open-source software up to date with bug fixes and software releases.
Commenting on the announcement, senior vice president and head of product business at Persistent Systems, Nitish Shrivastava [pictured], said: “Organisations across industries are significantly lagging in software upgrades, and many issues discovered in open-source code remain unresolved for an indeterminate amount of time”. Shrivastava added that the new platform will enable Persistent Systems to offer: “Customised fixes to open-source components, so our clients can enhance their operational efficiency and meet governance standards in a much faster timeframe.”
