To help strengthen the security of open source logistics flow solutions, Microsoft becomes a Platinum member of the OpenChain community.
Microsoft joins the community OpenChain as a “Platinium” member. He will therefore sit on the board of directors.
OpenChain is this gigantic open source project, pushed by the Linux foundation, which seeks to create a secure standard for managing logistics flows by exploiting the blockchain.
Led by Shane Coughlan, the organization already has prestigious Platinum members such as Google, Facebook, or Uber, Adobe, Qualcomm and Toyota.
Diverse and numbering in the tens of thousands, logistics flow management applications are used by both very small companies and huge structures.
OpenChain then makes it possible to establish common specifications to strengthen the reliability, trust and security of exchanges.
The boss of OpenChain is delighted with the arrival of Microsoft, if only because the firm now shares its patent portfolio with the Open Invention Network (OIN). He also relies on Microsoft’s ability to carry out standardization.
Finally, this commitment could also make it possible to attract even more big names in IT and the Web.
