IPSO And Open Mobile Form OMA SpecWorks

The Open Mobile Alliance (OMA) and the IPSO Alliance (IPSO) announced today that IPSO has transferred its assets, work and memberships to the OMA, forming a joint organization called OMA SpecWorks. All technical working groups from IPSO and OMA remain active and are tasked with creating and driving a set of global technical deliverables in the mobile and internet of things (IoT) services layer. OMA SpecWorks leverages OMA’s vast experience to allow developers to quickly transform an idea into an industry specification and then manage the specification's publication and maintenance.

 

OMA SpecWorks delivers a streamlined approach to standards development focused on the needs of its working groups, which are given a high level of autonomy. Members of a working group define their own cadence and work style to fit what best achieves the technical goals of their group. The OMA SpecWorks process is focused on enabling working groups to create quality technical outputs.
