Developing open standards for the Internet of things
The Internet of Things (IoT) is one of the new, convergent technologies addressed by Open Platform 3.0™ . The Open Group IoT standards will do for the IoT what HTML/HTTP did for the Web, enabling everything to be connected on the fly. Vendors will be able to collect information from products in the field throughout their lifecycle. This will allow the optimization of maintenance operations, providing increased safety at lower cost. Enterprises will be able to monitor and control installed equipment, and integrate it into intelligent solutions, for example to ensure the health of buildings and machinery, or to improve energy efficiency.
(The Work Group was formerly known as the QLM Work Group, reflecting the fact that the standards enable lifecycle management that is a quantum leap beyond traditional product lifecycle management.)
Members of the IoT Work Group of the Open Group Open Platform 3.0™ Forum  gain professional advantage from the group’s resources, market insights and expertise in a global community of peers. They lead the development of standards and certification programs, which ultimately results in the delivery of interoperability projects faster and with less effort. Vendors can collaborate on emerging open standards in a neutral forum, and demonstrate their compliance with those standards. Customers can influence the development of suppliers' products to ensure that they address real requirements and are interoperable.
