AllSeen Summit Events Announced, New Alliance Members Joining
The AllSeen Alliance, a cross-industry collaboration to advance the Internet of Everything through an open source software project, continues to gain momentum. This week, the organization announced six new members have joined the initiative including Fortune 50 company Lowe's, and technical support services provider, Radialpoint.
In addition, the Alliance is hosting its AllSeen Summit in Seattle, WA fro Oct. 18 to 23, and the speakers and events have been announced by The Linux Foundation, which is the Alliance's steward.
"To see constant growth and diversity among the Alliance's member roster is a testament to the shared belief that collaborative development and open technologies are the only way to transform IoT as an industry," said Philip DesAutels, senior director, IoT, AllSeen Alliance (shown at the top of this post). "These new member additions will help make AllJoyn a robust and highly scalable software for IoT devices, services and apps."
In a previous interview with DesAutels that we did on OStatic, he said the Alliance is very focused on the AllJoyn framework, which has already found its way into devices and applications. “We are building out an open source software project that delivers code that will help people build interoperable tools and devices. That is fundamental, and our software is downloadable today, and in production. There are many tools and devices that have AllJoyn today, and it helps ensure that everything works together.”
In Seattle, the Summit event "will unite business and thought leaders, developers, product managers and the open source community to address critical technological areas of the IoT and work together to advance the AllJoyn open source project," the announcement notes.
