Moxa has joined as a Platinum member for the OpenChain Project. The announcement was made by OpenChain Project, an initiative by the Linux Foundation to streamline open source compliance.
The OpenChain Project aims to build trust in open source by making open source license compliance simpler and more consistent across supplies chains.
The OpenChain Specification 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 the market. The OpenChain Specification is being prepared for submission to ISO and evolve from a de facto standard into a formal standard.
“Moxa is thrilled to join the OpenChain Project to demonstrate our commitment in supporting open source compliance standard,” said Andy Cheng, President of Strategic Business Unit at Moxa. “Moxa has been a strong supporter of the Linux Foundation for some of its important projects such as Civil Infrastructure Project (CIP) for long-term support Linux distribution. We are now looking forward to working closely with the OpenChain community for industry standards of open source compliance.”
Moxa has demonstrated its continuous commitment to open source compliance to enable advanced industrial networking and communications applications for the IIoT world.
As a Platinum member, Moxa will be the first Taiwan-based company to join the OpenChain’s board, expanding the project’s reach across multiple industries. An array of industry-leading companies have already joined the Platinum membership program, including ARM Holdings, Bosch, Cisco, Comcast, Facebook, Fujitsu, Google, Hitachi, Microsoft, Panasonic, Qualcomm, Siemens, Sony, Toshiba, Toyota, Uber, and Western Digital.
“We have been working with Moxa for a considerable period of time as Moxa has actively participated in OpenChain community during its key growth phase over the last two years,” said Shane Coughlan, OpenChain General Manager. “Our announcement today underlines the commitment on all our parts to further deepening collaboration and understanding. When we have a great opportunity in 2020 to build incredible bridges across the Mandarin-speaking world to ensure great open source compliance, I believe Moxa is a critical, timely partner to help us accomplish this goal.”
