OpenChain Welcomes GE Digital

SAN FRANCISCO, United States, July 28, 2017 — The OpenChain Project is delighted to welcome GE Digital to the community of OpenChain Conformant organizations.

“Every new participant in the OpenChain community of conformance is valued,” says Shane Coughlan, OpenChain Program Manager. “GE Digital is a welcome addition that underlines the utility of OpenChain for all types of company across multiple market sectors.”

The OpenChain Project identifies key recommended processes for effective open source management. The project builds trust in open source by making open source license compliance simpler and more consistent.

The OpenChain Specification defines a core set of requirements every quality compliance program must satisfy. The OpenChain Curriculum provides the educational foundation for open source processes and solutions, whilst meeting a key requirement of the OpenChain Specification. OpenChain Conformance allows organizations to display their adherence to these requirements.

The result is that open source license compliance becomes more predictable, understandable and efficient for participants of the software supply chain.

Organizations of all sizes are invited to review the OpenChain Project, to complete our free Online Self-Certification Questionnaire, and to join our community of trust.
