Reference Architectures and Open Group Standards for the Internet of Things – Executive Summary


The Internet of Things (IoT) is one of the new technological phenomena driving the current digital revolution, and addressed by the Open Platform 3.0™ Forum, a Forum of The Open Group. Networked sensors and controls will enable enterprises to provide new products and services, and improve their existing operations. Taking advantage of this opportunity presents a challenge to Enterprise Architects, and also to Solution and Product Architects.

This White Paper:

·  Discusses how architects can use standards to define IoT systems, solutions, and products

·  Compares four leading and emerging standard IoT reference architectures

·  Explains the role of The Open Group IoT Standards

Effective use by enterprises of information from the IoT contributes to The Open Group vision: Boundaryless Information Flow™.
