Chinese smartphone maker Oppo has just announced its entry into the OpenChain Project as a platinum member. This means that the brand will give its support in building an open source ecosystem on a global level, contributing to the development of open source ISO standards.
Oppo is the first platinum member of the OpenChain project from China
The even more important news, however, is that Oppo is now the first platinum member of the OpenChain project from China. So a notable primacy compared to the many other Chinese brands present in today's technological landscape. In fact, Oppo can be considered a brand like Google, Microsoft, Toyota, BOSCH and a few others, at least from this point of view.
Recall that the OpenChain project is chaired by The Linux Foundation, the world-renowned organization expert in the development of open technology and its implementation in industry. This project was born with the aim of increasing trust in open source making the compliance of the licenses of these systems easier and more coherent.
How did Oppo manage to become the first premium member of mainland China? In the official press release, Oppo states that:
OPPO has been chosen not only for its strength in research and development in the consumer electronics sector, but also for the vast supply chain network it has developed, which will be essential to promote open source technology and standards for both suppliers and end consumers, thus accelerating the development of open technology.Oppo Italy
The Chinese brand also added that
In the future, while contributing to the development of the open source ISO compliance standards of the OpenChain project, OPPO will also provide strategic supervision within the steering committee and actively guide the open source community through continuous innovation.Oppo Italy
What can I say, Oppo seems to become more and more an internationally recognized brand, becoming in fact the standard bearer from the Asian country in the technological sector. This immediately after the first branch in Western Europe opened in the city of Düsseldorf.
