IEEE SA OPEN Product Support Process

Our process is simple. We take a look at the following areas and assist you with making the right decisions for your organization.

IEEE provides the infrastructure for your open source software, open hardware and open data projects.

  • Your Needs: We focus on learning what your needs are to help you achieve the success that you and your organization are looking to attain.
  • Governance: Do you need a business organization or mission-based foundation? We can help you sort through your options and choose what works best.
  • Technology: Is your technology open source or on a standards track?
  • Community: How large is your community of members? How often do you meet? With our community of subject matter experts we can take your project to the next level. Our advisory groups can assist your team with marketing advice, technological questions, or offer community best practices to help your project during any stage.
  • IEEE: Does your project align with existing IEEE groups or standards?
  • Source code:Will you require a place to host and maintain your source code?
