Recognizing and Rewarding Excellence, Innovation, Perseverance, Leadership and Community Contribution

We are pleased to announce the Call for Nominations for The Open Group India Awards 2023.

Countries and organizations are moving towards open standards. These have a highly significant role in enabling global collaboration, international exchange of products and services, strengthening regulatory requirements, realizing interoperability, facilitating market competition. Furthermore, channeling organization efforts towards differentiated services based on innovation by standardizing the foundational aspects and minimizing vendor lock-in resulting from proprietary solutions.
