Are You Ready to Change the World with Us?

Information sharing is one of the most powerful forces that drives innovation. The Internet of Things (IoT) is dramatically changing and shaping both the world in which we currently live, as well as laying the groundwork for the future. We are working to make information open to all and are putting out a call to all IoT Alliances and Consortia to support the mission of OpenStand and adopt and embrace the OpenStand Principles.

OpenStand is a movement supporting the standardization of processes that have made the Internet and Web the premiere platforms for innovation. We stand behind voluntary adoption and empower the economies of global markets to drive global standards deployment. We invite innovators, developers, technologists, professionals, scientists, engineers, architects, academics, students, and government leaders to stand with us and promote a standards development model that allows for:

  • Cooperation among standards organizations
  • Adherence to due process, transparency, and openness in standards development
  • Commitment to technical merit, interoperability, innovation and benefit to humanity
  • Availability of standards to all
  • Voluntary adoption

We believe that the future of the IoT needs to embrace these Principles, not only for their benefit, but for the benefit of humanity. There are many Alliances and Consortia formed around the IoT and we ask that they join the OpenStand movement and its Partners in our stand as “we embrace a modern paradigm for standards where the economics of global markets, fueled by technological advancements, drive global deployment of standards regardless of their formal status.”

If you or your organization are ready to join this movement, formal endorsements can be submitted here. If you are an individual, please sign your name in support here. You can also download a site badge to publicly show your involvement with the cause — download it here.

We thank you for your support and helping us raise awareness of OpenStand!
