Reflections on 2020 and Looking Ahead to 2021

By Steve Nunn, President and CEO, The Open Group

Happy New Year everyone!

Firstly, I hope that you, your family, and friends, have been able to stay safe during these trying times. So many around the world have lost so much in this COVID-19 pandemic which clearly will be with us for some time yet. We must, however, be heartened by the unprecedented speed with which vaccines have been developed. The delivery and administration of these vaccines has only just begun, of course, but we have good reason to be optimistic about the coming months.

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.”
