OSSMETER – Automated measurement and analysis of open source software

Focus: Extending the state of the art in automated analysis and measurement of open source software. Developing a platform that supports decision makers in the process of discovering, comparing, assessing and monitoring the health, quality and evolution of open source software. Identifying and re-using high-quality open source software, rather than on in-house solutions with similar functionalities, enables organisations to focus on delivering innovative features.

Coordinator: The Open Group, UK

Partnership: University of York, UK; Centrum Wiskunde & Informatica, Netherlands; University of L’Aquila, Italy; University of Manchester, UK; Tecnalia, Spain; Softeam, France; UNINOVA, Portugal; Unparallel Innovation, Portugal

Impact: OSSMETER advances will enable organisations to make more informed and confident decisions about the open source software they build on. By automatically classifying open source projects, OSSMETER will enable organisations to discover new cutting-edge open source software initiatives on their area of interest. Enabling organisations to monitor in-house software development.
