OpenChain Project to feature at an event hosted by BCS, The Chartered Institute for IT

SAN FRANCISCO, United States, January 14, 2017 — The OpenChain Project will be featured at an event hosted by BCS, The Chartered Institute for IT, on the 22nd of March in London, England. Andrew Katz will explain how and why OpenChain addresses challenges regarding compliance in the supply chain. Mirko Boehm and Michael Jaeger will discuss the adjacent tooling projects entitled QuarterMaster and FOSSology.

“We are indebted to our partners such as Moorcrofts who continually share knowledge and experience that benefits the OpenChain Project,” says Shane Coughlan, OpenChain Project Director. “Andrew’s participation in this forthcoming BCS event marks the beginning of our 2018 outreach activities in the European sphere and a great way for British companies of all sizes to discover practical solutions to compliance challenges in the supply chain.”

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.
