The Digital Platform Standard

Digital platforms provide access to technologies such as cloud computing, mobile computing, social computing, big data analysis, and the Internet of things. Enterprises should be able to use technologies in combination for complex business solutions, but often cannot do so because the platforms will not work together. The Open Platform 3.0 standard will enable vendors to develop and supply the interoperable platforms that their customers need.

Events and Publications

The Open Group publishes freely-available standards, guides, and white papers on new and emerging digital technology trends and on the developing digital platform interoperability standard. It also holds events and webinars related to these topics, and in some cases publishes recordings.
