WhiteSource Launches GitHub Integration

WhiteSource announced GitHub integration in order to provide users with a real-time overview of the software components in their repositories. The integration allows users to detect open source components in their software, receive real-time alerts whenever a problematic component is added to a project, or when a new security vulnerability or critical bug is discovered in a user's open source components. Now users will be able to authorize WhiteSource and choose better code to begin with and will be able to fix component issues as they arise, instead of later on when they become more complicated and costly. WhiteSource can integrate with CI servers, build tools, third-party repositories or GitHub accounts to detect all open source components in software, including all dependencies, within minutes.

International Business Machines Corporation and GitHub Partner on Development of Next Generation Cloud Applications

International Business Machines Corporation and GitHub have announced a strategic partnership to advance the development of next generation cloud applications for enterprise customers. IBM and GitHub plan to deliver GitHub Enterprise as a dedicated service on Bluemix, IBM's Cloud Platform, to customers across private and hybrid cloud environments. By working with IBM Cloud, developers can expect to learn, code and work with GitHub's collaborative development tools in a private, environment with robust security capabilities. With GitHub Enterprise, code collaboration, code reuse, and review are built into the development process, offering managed, collaborative coding for large-scale enterprise software development teams. As part of Bluemix, the solution will provide customers with Hybrid DevOps capabilities through the Bluemix Dedicated and Local managed delivery models. As a result, customers can expect to have a unique opportunity to build software using GitHub Enterprise on Bluemix, allowing their developers to create end-to-end enterprise apps within IBM Cloud without having to worry about the overhead costs of infrastructure.
