About OpenLogic Certification
The purpose of OpenLogic Certification scores is to help enterprises evaluate the most appropriate open source packages for use within the enterprise.
About OpenLogic Certification Scores
OpenLogic conducts a rigorous 42-point certification process on each open source package that is available on OpenLogic Exchange (OLEX). As part of this process, we create scores that rate open source packages in three areas: Adoption, Community/Viability and Legal. We then average these three scores for an Overall certification score.
How Scores Are Calculated
Scores can range between one and five stars. To calculate the certification scores, we start by collecting raw data and statistics on each project. In some cases, we are not able to obtain all of the data needed using our standard processes. In this case, we may estimate the raw data or leave it blank. While we tried not to penalize a project for missing data, blank or estimated raw data may impact the overall score. We then apply a set of rules, created by OpenLogic, to translate the raw data into a score between one and five.
Data Used to Calculate the Scores
These scores are calculated based on data obtained from public sources. These sources of data cannot be guaranteed by OpenLogic and may not be accurate. OpenLogic may not use every possible public source of data. OpenLogic uses its own formulas and methodology to calculate the scores. This methodology may not be appropriate for your use. These scores should be used in conjunction with your own research to determine open source packages that are appropriate for your particular use. They should not be considered a replacement for your own due diligence.
