Huawei, a global leader in technology and open source, has joined the board of the OpenChain Project alongside 20 other global companies such as Qualcomm, Google, Siemens, and Toyota.
Huawei will work to align the supply chain behind OpenChain ISO 5230, the international standard for quality open-source compliance. “Huawei is delighted to join the OpenChain Project. Huawei adheres open collaboration and innovation, has long been committed to establishing a compliance management system that aligns with industry best practices, and incorporating compliance management into end-to-end business activities and processes,” said Wang Yousheng, director of open source & developer dept, Huawei.
Wang pointed out that Huawei will be an active member in OpenChain Project. Through mutual understanding, cooperation, and trust with global developers and open source communities, the Chinese multinational tech company hopes to build a “more secure and trustworthy open-source software chain together.“
“China is the center of innovation across many types of technology, including open source,” says Shane Coughlan, OpenChain general manager. “Huawei’s leadership in this space has helped build bridges across the world. Their decision to join the governing board of the OpenChain Project is further evidence of this and will be pivotable in taking OpenChain ISO 5230 to the next level. This will benefit every company using open-source, a shared undertaking we approach with both excitement and respect.”
