This session shares challenges that were encountered and lessons that were learned working together as a new local open source community around the OpenChain project in Japan. The OpenChain project is dedicated to building trust in software supply chains. The project prepares specifications, conformance evaluations and curriculum to promote OSS compliance.

In Japan, we have been building a local workgroup(Japan WG) of the project since 2017. A local workgroup gives non-native English speakers the opportunity to have easier and deeper discussions in their native language. While we communicate internally in Japanese, Japan WG communicates with the global community in English.

OSS compliance is not an area where companies compete, but rather benefits greatly from inter-organization collaboration. Japan WG provides real solutions for business. Now that they are aware of the value of collaboration, over 150 people from over 60 companies across automotive, CE and IT industries work together.
