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. IEEE SA OPEN projects are underway in diverse areas of technology development. IEEE SA OPEN provides community management, DevOps infrastructure, and governance, along with a growing set of templates and guides—thus supporting and strengthening the collaboration, growth, and sustainability of open source communities and their projects.
