SAN FRANCISCO, USA, May 24, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — ZTE, a global leader in telecommunications and information technology, achieved OpenChain ISO/IEC 5230 compliance with the help of CAICT. This third-party certification is a milestone in expressing both a Chinese multinational’s commitment to process management excellence and open source leadership.

“ZTE operates in more than 160 countries and serves a quarter of the world’s population with current and next-generation technology solutions,” said Xiang Shuming, director of compliance and security governance at ZTE. “Open source is central to our ability to innovate, and we are committed to being at the forefront of management and development in this area. We are proud to announce our OpenChain ISO/IEC 5230 certification and we look forward to continuing to work with CAICT and the OpenChain project in the years to come.

“CAICT launched our OpenChain third-party certification project in the first quarter of 2022 as an official OpenChain project partner,” said Guo Xue, Deputy Director, CAICT. “ZTE is the fourth – and largest to date – company we have collaborated with on certification. We are deeply grateful for both their commitment to excellence in open source and the spirit of community that ZTE and other recent Chinese compliant organizations have expressed. Chinese companies have always been strongly committed to open source, and we are entering a new era of global leadership.

“It was an exceptional year for the OpenChain project in China. We have strong leadership from OpenChain board member companies like OPPO, Haiwei, and HONOR, and a fantastic community with 220 participants,” said Shane Coughlan, Managing Director of OpenChain. “Working with CAICT and all types of other contributors to our China Task Force has been both productive and rewarding. Today’s ZTE compliance announcement is part of that story, and it’s a beacon to help inspire businesses in China and far beyond its borders. We are grateful for all the work that has been done and look forward to all the work we will do together in the years to come. »
