As we usher in the new decade, I would like to express my sincerest wishes for you – our valued Members, The Open Group global community, and staff – to enjoy much happiness and great success in 2020.

What a year it has been here at The Open Group! As I reflect on 2019 and consider what is to come in 2020, one thing is very clear – The Open Group is doing even more of what it does best – helping to solve real business problems through technology standards.

Why the Court of Master Sommeliers Made the Right Decision

Some of you may not know this about me, but I’m a wine fan. I don’t just enjoy drinking it, but I also enjoy learning about (and visiting!) the different grapes, and wine regions of the world. Indeed, a good friend of mine is studying for his Wine and Spirit Education Trust (WSET), Level 3 exams – not because he wants to work as a sommelier like many who take that course, but for his personal further enjoyment of wine! My wife and I have been on several “educational” wine trips with he and his wife, so I know how hard and how regularly he is studying for these. So when a cheating scandal rocked the world of Master Sommeliers last September, I was doubly curious about what happened, both on a personal and professional level.

A Look Back at 2018 and What’s to Come in 2019

For many of us, each new year is an occasion to look back at the previous year’s accomplishments, as well as look forward to what’s to come over the course of the next year. For the past three years since I took over the reins as CEO of The Open Group, I’ve made it a tradition to take advantage of the new year to do just this, as I’m sure many of you do both in your professional and personal lives.

With the passing of each year, I’m always struck not only by how quickly it goes by, but how many new opportunities arise throughout the year for The Open Group that none of us ever could have predicted. What’s nice for me, from where I sit, is that there is no shortage of new opportunities for us as an organization to do what we’ve always done—to help organizations come together to solve their business problems through open standards.
