Black Duck Software has introduced Android Fast Start, a bundled software service aimed at helping Android developers automate and simplify the managing of Android projects.
Android is a complex open source project made up of more than 165 components, 80,000 files, and 2 GB of code under 19 different licenses. The code base evolves rapidly, with many developers and companies contributing on a regular basis. Android Fast Start provides visibility and control of Android, simplifies change management and ensures and automates compliance.
“Android has rapidly become a leading platform for mobile innovation by offering developers rich, varied and flexible components. Innovation is made possible by rapid enhancements and significant releases, which require management and control,” said Bill McQuaide, EVP of Products and Strategy, Black Duck Software.
“We believe Android Fast Start is an essential tool for developers in the Android device ecosystem who want to ramp up quickly while reducing the operational and compliance challenges related to developing for this platform.”
