  • To discuss the standards harmonization logistics around The Open Group liaison positions with ISO SC27 WGs 3 and 4 and to discuss any preparation that was necessary for the upcoming ISO meeting in May, and also to discuss logistics around collecting Snapshot feedback
  • To look at the market adoption objectives and propose a strategy for increasing awareness and membership for both government and diversity in member representation

A meeting took place The Open Group Sales Directors and the following items were discussed.

Increase awareness/market adoption for global governments and other customers and for target membership – to round out Forum constituents. We need global government representatives and more diversity in vendors (manufacturers, component suppliers, etc.).

The need to update the current collateral was noted (FAQ, two-page data sheet, slide set).

Additionally, the need to create new collateral and update the web site with new collateral was discussed (two new one-page documents, tailored to global community and to vendor community).
