Inno3 is the Latest OpenChain Conformant Organization

By 2020-01-28February 12th, 2020News

SAN FRANCISCO, JANUARY 29, 2020 – Today the OpenChain Project welcomes Inno3 as our latest conformant organization. Inno3 is an open, independent innovation consultancy specializing in Open Data and Open Source. They have been a leading service provider in France since 2001.

The OpenChain standard defines inflection points in business workflows where a compliance process, policy or training should exist to minimize the potential for errors and maximize the efficiency of bringing solutions to market. The companies involved in the OpenChain community number in the hundreds. The OpenChain standard is being prepared for submission to ISO and evolution from de facto into a formal standard in 2020.

“In today’s compliance landscape, OpenChain is a key standard, that stands on the shoulders of other open standards like SPDX,” says Camille Moulin, Senior Consultant at Inno3. “It sets a proven framework that we use both internally and with our clients, providing at the same time strong focus points and enough flexibility to adapt to each specific business context. It’s a transparent, global open project, thriving with local communities, and we’re very enthusiastic about relaying this dynamic in France.”

“Inno3 is a company with a long history of effective engagement with open source,” says Shane Coughlan, OpenChain General Manager. “Their announcement of OpenChain Conformance today underlines not only their commitment to excellence with regards their product-offerings and customers, but also marks a milestone of increased OpenChain presence and influence in France. I am looking forward to collaborating with Camille and his team on next steps.”

About the OpenChain Project

The OpenChain 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.
