OpenChain Welcomes Endocode

SAN FRANCISCO, United States, July 27, 2017 — The OpenChain Project is proud to welcome Endocode to the community of OpenChain Conformant organizations.

“Endocode is an exceptional company,” says Shane Coughlan, OpenChain Program Manager. “They come from the heart of the open source community and provide a range of services that underline their exceptional efficiency in resource allocation. I am delighted to welcome Endocode not only as a valued contributor to the eco-system but also because of what they can bring to our community as we scale.”

“Being Open Source license compliant is a vital constraint for all hardware and software manufacturers that include Open Source components in their products, says Mirko Boehm, Founder and CEO of Endocode. “OpenChain aims at making open source license compliance simpler and more consistent. This is a mission we share and are excited to contribute to. Endocode has been working with the industry to improve compliance auditing and tooling. We are thrilled to join a community that is working towards the same goals.”

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.
