Standards and open source are closely linked. Open source allows you to stay on the cutting edge, to have the latest and most innovative technologies at your disposal at all times. No one company is going to outpace the rate at which an open source community produces innovative new software. In spirit and by definition, open source excludes all things proprietary.
Standards and architectures are the guidelines that ensure the ability for open source software to integrate, exchange and interact. Defining these is, therefore, a crucial element, and Cloudera is now taking part in just that for the biggest revolution we’ve seen in business and society: the Internet of Things (IoT).
