On 19 November, IEEE-SA President Steve Mills addressed the Global Standards Symposium in Dubai.
The Global Standards Symposium (GSS) is a one-day event where ministers, regulators, heads of other international, regional and major national standards bodies, and industry from the different regions of the world discuss global ICT standards challenges, with a focus on the intersection of the ICT sector with other vertical sectors such as health care, utilities, and transport.
Participating in the “Global Standards Collaboration Roundtable”, Mr. Mills discussed with fellow panelists how the business of standards-making is becoming increasingly complex and costly, and SDOs must form partnerships and work collaboratively. He stressed the importance of SDOs working in collaboration in open processes to ensure open standards that serve as the foundation for innovation. He also stressed that coordination and collaboration are the hallmarks of the OpenStand principles.
