There are a number of non-M&A situations in which Palamida Professional Services can add value when the availability of additional resources and expertise is required to meet schedules or to jumpstart major initiatives. For example:
- As the starting point for an OSS compliance program involving the use of Palamida software systems
- When you are receiving a code drop from an outsourced supplier
- At a key development milestone
- When a sales contract calls for disclosure of code content
- When you anticipate making a software project open source
- If you anticipate interest from potential acquirers
- IP Litigation
In all of these cases Palamida Professional Services can supply the resources and expertise to enable predictable and accurate completion of the analysis. As with M&A projects, the scope of analysis can be tailored to the situation—from overview to detailed analysis and all projects are treated with the same level of confidentiality. Palamida’s experience with baseline audits range from small to complete baselines for extensive product lines. In many cases, baseline audits are performed in conjunction with the startup of an OSS compliance initiative which includes use of Palamida software products. In these cases, the results of the baseline audit remain live in the Palamida system for reporting and future rescans. The process for a baseline audit is similar to an M&A engagement from the standpoint of determining the scope and level of analysis. Typically, however the Palamida team will work more closely with the customer organization to transfer not only analysis results but also knowledge and best practices so that results can more easily form the basis of an on-going program if required. Our Professional Services team members can help you determine how and when baseline audit services make sense for your organization.
