OpenChain Project Japan Work Group has begun an exciting project to create ‘Reference Business Workflows for open source compliance.’ Your comments are welcome as we prepare a formal 2019 release.
“Business workflows for software development are critical for organizations seeking to improve open source compliance processes. In this context “business workflow” means how software and relevant license information is received from a supplier, how it is transferred and processed internally, and finally how it is released to customers. Inside an organization several team (functional blocks) may cooperate with each other to achieve overall open source compliance.
To contribute to this discussion the OpenChain Japan Work Group has prepared examples of roles in business workflows. These examples are intended to help frame the discussion and to acknowledge that multiple roles exist in multiple business workflows across different companies and markets.”
