Packages used for data science are very often associated with open source licenses that specify how the packages can be used. While many licenses allow a broad range of usage, some are more restrictive, especially with respect to production environments. Anaconda Server allows for filtering by license type, which can help organizations govern package availability before license issues can cause production issues.
