OpenChain KWG meets every quarter to create value together through sharing and collaboration.

Even if large companies have already established policies and processes for Open Source Compliance, considering the huge and complex software supply chain, it is difficult to escape from compliance risks, no matter how well-completed processes are in place. After all, it is important to increase the level of compliance for all companies in the software supply chain. To do this, companies that already have a good understanding of Open Source Compliance should share their assets and guide them so that other companies can easily participate.

Even if a company’s Open Source Compliance assets are shared with competitors, it does not adversely affect sales. Conversely, finding out a competitor’s Open Source Compliance policy cannot link it to an increase in corporate profits. If companies share best practices for Open Source Compliance with each other, each company can achieve significant levels of compliance with little cost and resources.

Some Korean companies also shared the same idea, and in January 2019, the first OpenChain KWG (Korea Work Group) meeting was held in which open source people from LG Electronics, SK Telecom, Kakao, Hyundai Motors, and Samsung Electronics participated.
