OpenChain Project @ Open Compliance Summit

SAN FRANCISCO, United States, November 8, 2017 — The OpenChain Project will feature in several talks at the Open Compliance Summit in Yokohama, Japan between the 16th and 17th November. The main talk is entitled ‘Giving Everyone Access To Open Source Best Practices: The OpenChain Specification and Curriculum’ by Shane Coughlan, OpenChain Project Director. Various aspects of OpenChain Project will also be discussed in ‘Toyota’s Activities for OSS Compliance’ by Masato Endo of Toyota Motor Corporation, in ‘Utilizing the Blockchain to Establish Trust with the Open Source Used Across a Supply Chain’ by Mark Gisi of Wind River and in ‘Partnering for a Good Compliance Program’ by Nithya Ruff of Comcast.

“The Open Compliance Summit provides an excellent opportunity to highlight practical work to address governing challenges,” says Shane Coughlan, OpenChain Project Director. “I am delighted to work closely with key participants in our community to show how we are deploying OpenChain-related solutions today and where we are going tomorrow.”

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.
