OpenChain Project Adds Microsoft as Platinum Member

12:00 pm ET February 6, 2019 (PR Newswire) Print

The OpenChain Project, which builds trust in open source by making open source license compliance simpler and more consistent, announced today that Microsoft Corp. has joined as a platinum member. This comes on the heels of several other large companies joining OpenChain last month including Uber, Google and Facebook. The only standard for open source compliance in the supply chain, OpenChain provides a specification as well as overarching processes, policies and training that companies need to be successful in managing open source license compliance so that it becomes more efficient, understandable and predictable for participants of the software supply chain.

Companies consume billions of lines of open source software through their supply chains as they build new products and services. One key challenge as code flows between companies is ensuring the relevant license requirements are met in a timely and effective manner. The OpenChain Project provides companies with a consistent way to address these challenges. It's hard to overstate the importance of this work given open source is a critical input at every step in the supply chain, both in hardware and software.

By joining OpenChain, Microsoft will help create best practices and define standards for open source software compliance, so that its customers have even greater choice and opportunity to bridge Microsoft and other technologies together in heterogeneous environments. Conformance with the OpenChain Specification shows that an organization follows the key requirements of a quality open source compliance program, and builds trust between organizations in the supply chain. It makes procurement easier for purchasers and preferred status easier for suppliers.

"Trust is key to open source, and compliance with open source licenses is an important part of building that trust," said David Rudin, Assistant General Counsel, Microsoft. "By joining the OpenChain Project, we look forward to working alongside the community to define compliance standards that help build confidence in the open source ecosystem and supply chain."

"We're thrilled that Microsoft has joined the project and welcome their expertise," said Shane Coughlan, OpenChain General Manager. "Microsoft is a strong addition not only in terms of open source but also in standardization. Their membership provides great balance to our community of enterprise, cloud, automotive and silicon companies, allowing us to ensure the standard is suitable for any size company across any industry."

As a platinum member, a representative from Microsoft will join the OpenChain Governing Board. Other platinum members of the OpenChain project include Adobe, ARM Holdings, Cisco, Comcast, Facebook, GitHub, Google, Harman International, Hitachi, Qualcomm, Siemens, Sony, Toshiba, Toyota, Uber and Western Digital.
