Source Auditor is a software and services organization focused on identifying and managing Open Source code in commercial software products. Originally founded as CoTegrity in 2004 after several technical due diligence exercises, Source Auditor has developed significant expertise, a large knowledge base, and sophisticated proprietary software scanning technology to help companies identify and manage their open source license obligations. We have conducted over 200 open source audits working with F500 companies as well as small software startups across a wide variety of platforms including consumer electronics, enterprise software, and hosted service environments. We consider it our mission to help you optimize your open source compliance.
Source Auditor was co-founded by Gary O’Neall, where he also serves as the Chief Technology Officer and as a Principal Consultant. He has served for over 20 years in a wide variety of technology management roles in F500 companies like HP and Motorola, and in smaller startups like Placeware and Icarian. He has managed technology due diligence both from the point of view of the acquirer and from the point of view of the acquisition. As the Chief Technology Officer of Placeware when it was acquired by Microsoft in 2003, Gary drove the required technical due diligence and learned many helpful lessons about finding out what open source was really inside his own source code. As the General Manager of Electronic Commerce for Hewlett Packard, Gary drove the required technical due diligence when HP acquired VeriFone. Today, Gary also actively participates in the OpenChain specification and conformance workgroups and makes periodic contributions to SPDX. Gary can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
