This year is the first time the Gartner Application Innovation & Business Solutions Summit will be virtual, and we are so excited to be sponsoring the event this week. We attended the last in-person conference in Las Vegas and had an amazing time speaking with IT and business executives.
Tidelift CEO and co-founder Donald Fischer is presenting on Thursday, May 27 at 12:30 p.m. ET about the state of open source software supply chain management and security in the wake of SolarWinds. This is a must-attend session for anyone who develops applications using open source—which probably includes your team, since our survey data indicates over 92% of applications contain open source.
This subject is even more important following the White House’s recent cybersecurity executive order. Long story short: the cybersecurity executive order is an attempt by the US government to use its purchasing power to create positive changes to the way cybersecurity is addressed around the world.
Donald has some insight and proposed solutions and strategies to share in his talk, so don’t miss it.
If avoiding open source supply chain attacks is on your to-do list, please join us on June 7 for Upstream, a free, one-day celebration of open source, the developers who use it, and the maintainers who make it. Alex Williams of The New Stack will be hosting a panel discussing the state of the open source supply chain, featuring industry experts like Gartner analyst Arun Batchu, Intuit DevSecOps leader Shannon Lietz, and Nithya Ruff of Comcast. RSVP here.
