IT company expands portfolio to include open-source license management and services around OpenChain ISO/IEC 5230
TIMETOACT becomes an official partner of OpenChain a project of the Linux Foundation: With this partnership the IT company from Cologne Germany qualifies to advise companies on the implementation of open-source license management programs and to support customers adopting OpenChain ISO/IEC 5230.
Open source software, just like proprietary software, is used based on various license conditions. It is important to adhere to these conditions to ensure smooth business operations and to avoid concerns or conflicts with third parties. OpenChain ISO/IEC 5230 is an International Standard focused on identifying the key requirements of a quality open source license compliance program, and allows companies that adopt it through self-certification, independent assessment or third-party certification to substantial reduce their potential exposure to issues.
“Open source has long been more than just a trend in the IT landscape – more and more software uses open-source libraries, frameworks and the like,” says Simon Pletschacher, Manager IT Performance Strategy at TIMETOACT. “We are very pleased to be working with OpenChain. The partnership offers our customers tangible added value and will help them to adopt OpenChain ISO/IEC 5230 in the future.”
“OpenChain helps companies of all sizes and across all markets get more effective license programs in place,” says Shane Coughlan, OpenChain General Manager. “We are pleased to welcome TIMETOACT as another consultancy partner in our project and to collaborate on making sure more companies have easy access to the key requirements of quality open source compliance programs.”
