The OpenChain Project in one page

SAN FRANCISCO, United States, November 29, 2017 — The OpenChain Project is delighted to share the latest output from our volunteer onboarding work team: a quick, simple and beautiful one page explanation of the key benefits of the project.

“The OpenChain Project is continually striving to make compliance as simple as possible,” says Shane Coughlan, OpenChain Project Director. “An important part of this is sharing accessible overviews of our project and its value proposition. Thanks to the hard work of our onboarding work team we are constantly improving our messaging.”

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.
