The traditional way of source code escrow
The old way of establishing software escrow doesn't fit the fast moving
software industry of today:
For software developers
Manual and outdated deposits
Expensive lawyer driven paper process
Not scalable across many customers
SLA non-compliance liability as a result
For software licensors
Recovery problems due to old versions
No recovery support available
Hard to scale across many suppliers
No control over supplier SLA compliance
For development outsourcing
Process doesn't work with development
No integrated verification options
Doesn't fit continuous deployment setups
Complex to resolve conflicts
