The Open Grid Alliance(OGA) was formed with objective to rearchitect the Internet for future as continuum of edge cloud technologies, specific to the needs of current and future use cases. With e view in mind to meet the requirements of high bandwidth and low latency application needs driven by open standards and federated marketplace. The OGA Industry Development Workstream is one of the workstreams focused on bringing collaboration across various industry led forums that have similar objective.
Industry forums can act as a partner to help OGA in numerous ways such as hosting software projects, including the OGA framework part of the industry specific architectures to promote openness and interworking. Also these same industry forums can help contribute for specific components needed to accelerate innovation and ideas, collaborate to define industry standard specifications, and potentially host sites or labs for prototypes that delivers reference architectures of OGA.
As a partner, OGA would contribute appropriate for the other industry forums as needed such as contribute for open-source software projects, co-author whitepapers and specifications, deliver workshops and sessions jointly for industry events.
Industry development workstream welcomes any industry forums that are focused on industry contribution such as open-source software, standards, framework for various use cases and federal bodies that has similar or complimentary objective and vision of the OGA as organization or with at least one of their projects.
OGA’s process is simple and friendly, we encourage collaboration on multiple areas of interest.

The initial step is to define the synergy we see in collaborating together, may be through exchange of emails and couple of discussions. Later, we Industry development workstream may involve other OGA peer workstreams as needed and go through internal approvals for working towards formal MoU. Either we or partner organization shares the draft for MoU,and it’s reviewed at both ends to create the final version of the same to formalize the partnership and define the areas and objective of collaboration.Usually, the MoU is announced through a press release for the industry along with its member organizations.
