Open Standards

Open Standards are standards made available to the general public and are developed and maintained via a collaborative and consensus driven process.

What are open standards good for?


Open standards help different commuinities work toward similar goals by providing baseline functionalities to be included if you want your project to be in line with the standards.

Ease of Deployment

Open standards provide a confidence in different solutions working together in your environment because you know it has been built to agreed upon standards in the community.


Easily swap out solutions built on open standards should they stop receiving updates or not function as well as you’d hope in your environment.
