AllSeen Alliance Now has 50 Members

The AllSeen Alliance is a Linux Foundation Collaboration Project that got its start in December of 2013.

Joe Speed, director of IoT for the AllSeen Alliance, told Enterprise Networking Planet that there has been a lot of interest in the AllSeen Alliance since it was established in December. Speed noted that the group has not been doing outbound solicitation. Instead, companies are approaching the Alliance about how to get involved, and the result is often membership.

"Alliance members often talk to others in their ecosystem (partners, suppliers, even competitors) about the benefits of this alliance and open source IoT project," Speed said. "Network effect applies in IoT, so there is more value created when all the things can interact with one another in smart ways."
