Open Source Management

Open Source software plays a major role in most information technology today. An Open Source management program designed to minimize security legal and operational risks and improve overall productivity is critical to maximize the benefits of Open Source software.

We can help you develop and implement an effective Open Source software management program:

OpenChain Conformance (ISO/IEC 5230)

The OpenChain Project is a Linux Foundation initiative and an ISO standard (ISO/IEC 5230:2020) with the objective of building trust in Open Source Software by making Open Source compliance clear and consistent throughout the software supply chain. The OpenChain Specification defines a core set of requirements which every quality compliance program must satisfy. While the OpenChain defines the “What” and the “Why”, the “How” and the “When” are open for each company interpretation. We work with organisations to guide them through the adoption of the OpenChain specifications.
