BURLINGTON, Mass., April 18, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Black Duck Software, the leader in open source software knowledge, adoption and governance, today reported significant results for the first quarter of 2012. The company announced that this period was the most successful first quarter in company history, enabling it to sustain its 34 percent compound annual growth rate (CAGR). This success underscores growing enterprise demand for open source software (OSS), the need for solutions to manage OSS use and governance, and the adoption of open source methods and technologies by several industry alliances.

In support of this effort, Black Duck announced the addition of two key staff members to help lead developer relations. Dave Gruber joined Black Duck as Director of Developer Product Marketing, and Rich Sands was appointed Director of Developer Communities.
  • In the automotive industry, Black Duck became an active member of the GENIVI Alliance, a non-profit automotive and consumer electronics industry association that drives collaboration among vehicle manufacturers and suppliers to build OSS infrastructure for in-vehicle infotainment (IVI) systems.
  • Collaborating with BearingPoint, the company released results of a survey of the European automotive industry, which demonstrated the pervasiveness of OSS use, its benefits and management challenges.
