ActiveState Offers Free Methodology to Implement Open Source Language Automation
February 21, 2019

ActiveState introduced a methodology for successfully leveraging open source languages with its Open Source Language Automation blueprint.

Comprised of four phases, this blueprint aims to provide the industry with guidelines to decrease the costs and risks of managing open source languages.

ActiveState has been an open source language leader for more than 20 years and has learned the challenges faced by management and developers with open source languages. And these challenges are exacerbated with polyglot or multilingual environments. The documented four-phase methodology to implement Open Source Language Automation establishes a systematic and automated workflow that decreases costs and risks of managing open source languages.

The four phases and their resulting outcomes are:

- Define Open Source Language Policies: Programmatically enforce open source language policies to ensure compliance against entire organization.

- Centralize Open Source Language Dependencies: Track languages and packages across DevOps to assess open source usage.

- Automate Open Source Language Builds: Reduce vulnerabilities and increase application quality.

- Deploy and Manage Open Source Language Artifacts: Automatically update all of your test, stage and production servers with the appropriate and latest open source language builds.

Bart Copeland, President and CEO, ActiveState: "We are dedicated to helping the industry realize the true value of working with open source languages. We believe you should be able to track when and where your applications were vulnerable and respond with automatic enforcement of your open source language policies. Management should gain security and stability and your development teams should attain greater velocity."
