On the 17th of September Davis Marr presented on “OpenChain: Open Source License Compliance and Management Across the Supply Chain” at the Flight Boston conference in Boston, US.

OpenChain is a project of the Linux Foundation, aiming to develop a compliance standard for software development, distribution and deployment within the supply chain. It’s already been supported by companies as diverse as Facebook, Google, Uber, Hitachi Data Systems, Toyota, Intel and Siemens, as well as many smaller companies. A compliant company can demonstrate that it understands Open Source licensing issues, have trained relevant staff and have processes and procedures in place to identify and ensure compliance with all relevant licenses, such that downstream members of the supply chain can rely on compliant software obtained from their OpenChain compliance supplier.
