IEEE Standards Association (IEEE SA) is a collaborative organization where innovators raise the world’s standards for technology. IEEE SA provides a globally open, consensus-building environment and platform that empowers people to work together in the development of leading-edge, market-relevant technology standards, and industry solutions shaping a better, safer and sustainable world.
The addition of open source to the IEEE SA collaboration platform is a key milestone in the organization’s ongoing transformation and expansion into new business and industry sectors. IEEE SA OPEN is intended to bridge the gap between standards developers and other open technical communities to enable nimble and creative technical solutions. IEEE SA OPEN addresses common challenges faced by the open-source development community, such as lack of relevant engagement in projects, solution incompatibility, and complexity around intellectual property (IP) licensing.
