Palamida Accelerates Open Source Intellectual Property Compliance, backed by most complete code library
Database of Open Source Projects and Licenses Increases by over 50% Including New Projects from Eclipse and SpikeSource
SAN FRANCISCO - February 14, 2006 -
Palamida continuously updates its Compliance Library, and has recently added components that make up Spike(tm) Stacks, tested and validated open source stacks from SpikeSource, and open source components from the Eclipse Foundation.
The Compliance Library is expanding from 3 billion to over 5 billion recorded source code fingerprints - identifying markers for source code snippets. In addition to source code detection, Palamida IP Amplifier also can detect the use of third-party code, even if users do not have access to source code, through its unique technology for binary file detection. Accordingly, the Compliance Library has also increased from 200 million to 300 million recorded binary file fingerprints and from 8 million to 9 million recorded Java namespace names. The new version of the Compliance Library will be available by the end of February.
"Our focus since the beginning has been to search against the largest possible universe of known code, while delivering the most relevant results," said Mark Tolliver, Palamida CEO. "That requires a large and continuously growing repository of open source code, but just as importantly, filtering, ranking and auto-inventory algorithms that deliver the most relevant results to our users based on the requirements of a specific search task. It's the best of both worlds - rapid analysis against our extensive repository with relevant results through our patent-pending ranking technology."
Last year, Palamida joined the Eclipse Foundation as an Add-In Provider, agreeing to work with the Eclipse community to increase adoption of IP compliance as an element of the software development process. Palamida will work directly with the Eclipse Foundation to expand its Compliance Library.
"Working closely with Palamida helps ensure that the company's Compliance Library includes a comprehensive repository of Eclipse components," said Mike Milinkovich, Executive Director, Eclipse Foundation, Inc. "This is consistent with our commitment to IT organizations and ISVs that our development platform and application frameworks set the high water mark for IP integrity amongst open source."
Palamida also is integrating more than 50 open source components included in Spike Stacks, the tested and validated open source stacks distributed by SpikeSource.
"We wanted to ensure that Palamida and their customers have access to the most up-to-date components and compatibility guidelines for Spike Stacks," said Jamshed Patel, vice president of solutions, SpikeSource. "Like Palamida, we're committed to accelerating enterprise adoption of open source, and collaborating with ecosystem partners to deliver solid solutions for IP integrity is critical to making that happen."
About IP Amplifier
IP Amplifier offers a groundbreaking approach to managing corporate software IP code bases. It consists of two key modules - the Compliance Library and the Detector. Using an advanced, automated collection system, the Compliance Library contains billions of source code snippets and millions of files of open source projects. Both the Detector and Compliance Library modules rely on patent-pending CodeRank(tm) technology. CodeRank combats false-positive identifications through advanced logic that identifies and prioritizes code matches from terabytes of available open source components.
San Francisco-based Palamida is breaking new ground in software compliance and license management, accelerating developers' ability to innovate based on open source and reusable software components. With the industry's fastest search and reporting against the world's largest database of open source and third-party software code, Palamida's innovative search technology can reduce software compliance efforts from weeks to hours. Founded in 2003, Palamida is led by industry veterans and backed by leading venture capital firms. Investors include Hummer Winblad Venture Partners, WaldenVC, and Stanford University.
