Welcoming FOSSID AB as our latest Partner

By June 5, 2019June 17th, 2019News

The OpenChain Project is delighted to welcome FOSSID as our latest participant in the partner program. We are developing a compelling commercial partner program to support of our core mission of ensuring that any organization, anywhere can adopt OpenChain easily. The partner program operates adjacent to our free online self-certification, free reference material and free access to our specification. Our goal is to provide user companies the option of obtaining assistance from training, consultancy or tooling entities, from outside law firms and from third-party certification authorities.

“The OpenChain Project has grown immensely in the last year and a half,” says Shane Coughlan, OpenChain General Manager. “This growth has occurred precisely where we can make the most difference: in the heart of key supply chains such as embedded, mobile and automotive. We are delighted to welcome FOSSID to the OpenChain Partner Program as our first tooling vender. Not only do they have deep experience in open source, but Oskar and his team have been involved in our project as observers and contributors for several years. I believe our collaboration will help more companies become OpenChain conformant more quickly. I am looking forward to next steps.”

“From the get-go, we realized that OpenChain would become a driver of great value to entire ecosystems, making open source license compliance more efficient and bringing better confidence to every layer in the supply chain”, said Oskar Swirtun, CEO, FOSSID. “Having been keen observers and contributors for many years, today we proudly announce us joining OpenChain as the first tooling vendor partner. We are excited to help companies and organizations become OpenChain conformant through our lightweight and flexible tools.”
