Setting Standards for New Technology

Great discussion with Steve Nunn, CEO of The Open Group, a global vendor-neutral consortium bringing together C-level executives, architects, engineers, and developers from Fortune 500 to SMBs to discuss the future of different technologies and the need for standards to ensure integration and adoption.
During recent interviews on IoT, big data, and performance optimization and monitoring, one of the concerns of the executives with whom I spoke is the speed with which platforms, architectures, and tools are changing. This results in great difficulty keeping up with the phenomenal pace of change. The lack of standards is resulting in a disparate collection of solutions that must be cobbled together rather than a cohesive set of solutions that can be easily integrated.
