Abstract: Open Source Software (OSS) has become a strategic asset in software development, and open source communities behind OSS are a key player in the field. By 2016 an estimated 95% of all commercial software packages will include OSS. This extended adoption is yet not avoiding failure rates in OSS projects to be as high as 50%. Inadequate risk management has been identified among the top mistakes to avoid when implementing OSS-based solutions. Understanding, managing and mitigating OSS adoption risks is therefore crucial to avoid potentially significant adverse impact on the business. This chapter introduces the RISCOSS decision support platform. RISCOSS develops a risk managementbased methodology to facilitate the adoption of open source code into mainstream products and services. RISCOSS develops a methodology and a software platform that integrate the whole decision-making chain, from technology criteria to strategic concerns. Using advanced software engineering techniques and risk mana gement methodologies, RISCOSS develops innovative tools and methods to identify, manage and mitigate risks of integrating third-party open source software. RISCOSS is the only platform to deliver a complete solution rather than a piecemeal approach to enable mainstream product developers to safely integrate open source software in their developments. Itself an open source project, RISCOSS is open to third party contributions to help the platform grow in functionalities and make the transition to a fully marketable product or service. The platform will be validated against a collection of use cases coming from different types of organizations and emergent small OSS products. (More)
