The Working Groups serve as ONUG’s vehicle to generate industry change as a community of IT executives, industry leaders, and standards/open source professionals that provides choice, lower total cost of ownership, and faster IT delivery.
ONUG Working Groups, led by IT business leaders, develop detailed open networking use case requirements that standards/open source organizations and vendors can use to prioritize their respective initiatives and investments. The ONUG Community is encouraged to place its collective procurement power behind the ONUG Working Group Use Cases. This puts the buying power back in the hands of the user, as they provide vendors with prioritized needs around which to formulate products and services. The end goal is for the vendor and/or open source community to develop multi-vendor interoperable PoC demonstrations at ONUG that are in compliance with functional use case solution requirements as proposed by the ONUG Working Groups.
