About Andrew Katz Talk
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 adopted 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 licences, such that downstream members of the supply chain can rely on compliant software obtained from their OpenChain compliance supplier.
Andrew Katz will explain how OpenChain can benefit companies of all sizes, reduce friction in the supply chain, provide a competitive advantage, and will present case studies of companies small and large which have adopted OpenChain.
