SAN FRANCISCO, September 2, 2020 – The OpenChain Project announces Synopsys as the latest official OpenChain Partner.
“Black Duck, acquired by Synopsys in 2017, has long been recognized as a pioneer in the field of open source compliance tooling and management solutions,” says Matthew Jacobs, Director, Legal Counsel at Synopsys. “Encouraging and enabling organizations of all sizes to use open source in a responsible manner, respectful of the copyright holder’s intentions, requires a commitment to process and we are thrilled to join the OpenChain community in promoting adoption of, and commitment to, that process.”
“Matt Jacobs and the team at Synopsys have long been involved around the OpenChain Project via webinars and other outreach activity,” says Shane Coughlan, OpenChain General Manager. “It is great to welcome them into the program and provide additional freedom of choice for people seeking assistance from tooling vendors.”

Abstract: OpenChain standardizes license compliance requirements around the use of open source software in the supply chain. Customers purchasing from an OpenChain compliant company know that the software has been developed in line with a set of documented and tested procedures and that all the relevant meta data (SBOMs and compliance notices) is available. So what does that mean for you?
