Resilience and Agility within The Open Group, Real-Time Embedded Systems, and the EC

A recent message to the staff of The Open Group by Steve Nunn, our President and CEO, quoted from the Company’s yearly strategy review document:

“As an organization, The Open Group is increasingly agile. However, more important at the moment, in particular, is the quality of resilience. Agility is a positive contributor to resilience, but being agile is not enough to be resilient. Resilience also requires continuity, recoverability, hardening, strength, forecasting, and many other capabilities. In our case, it also includes being open – operationally, culturally, technically, and in every other way. From a mission perspective, it demonstrates our progress “From Good to Great”. The Open Group has demonstrated its resilience several times in the past, and will continue to do so in the future.”
