28/03/2022. TIMETOACT becomes an official partner of OpenChain, a project of the Linux Foundation: With this partnership, the IT company from Cologne, Germany, qualifies to advise companies on the implementation of open source license management programs and to support customers adopting OpenChain ISO/IEC 5230.
Open source software, just like proprietary software, is used based on various license conditions. It is important to adhere to these conditions to ensure smooth business operations and to avoid concerns or conflicts with third parties. OpenChain ISO/IEC 5230 is an International Standard focused on identifying the key requirements of a quality open source license compliance program, and allows companies that adopt it through self-certification, independent assessment or third-party certification to substantially reduce their potential exposure to issues.
Open source has long been more than just a trend in the IT landscape – more and more software are build on open source libraries, frameworks, etc. We are very pleased to be working with OpenChain. The partnership offers our customers tangible added value and will help them to adopt OpenChain ISO/IEC 5230 in the future.Simon Pletschacher Manager IT Performance StrategyTIMETOACT
