BlackBoard: Educational Software



  • Manual processes did not scale
  • Component tracking resided within a spreadsheet
  • Took two days to find and approve a component, framework or library
  • Days to identify a fix for production vulnerabilities


  • Nexus Lifecycle
  • Integration with Jenkins CI Server


  • Automated component version selection
  • Vulnerability tracking and monitoring
  • Real-time updates on component security, licensing and quality
  • Up and running within a day
