BROOMFIELD, Colo. -- OpenLogic, Inc., a provider of enterprise open source solutions encompassing hundreds of open source packages, today announced the general availability of OpenLogic Discovery, a free software tool that helps enterprises inventory the open source software installed on their computer systems. OpenLogic Discovery identifies over 5,000 versions of the top 900 open source packages used by enterprises today by marking open source fingerprints. By finding installed open source software on Windows, Linux and Solaris platforms, OpenLogic Discovery helps enterprise customers manage and support open source software.

OpenLogic is also announcing a free Open Source Inventory Analysis for up to 500 machines. Using OpenLogic Discovery's command line interface, customers can quickly scan up to 500 computers and send results from the scans to OpenLogic for an inventory analysis. The analysis includes what open source packages are installed and how many installations of each package are identified. The free report will also detail which of the open source packages found have passed OpenLogics 42-point certification process and list the open source licenses involved.

"OpenLogic is responding to requests from its Fortune 500 customers who need a way to identify what open source packages have already been installed on their machines," said Steve Grandchamp, CEO of OpenLogic. "Most large organizations have begun, or soon plan to begin, developing open source policies, but the natural first step in this process is to know exactly what packages are already installed."
