Standardization in the ICT sector


The ICT sector has gained more and more importance in society in the last decades, as evidenced for instance by the computerization of equipment in general, the advent of global connectivity, and more recently the emergence of smart paradigms such as the Internet of Things and Artificial Intelligence. We are probably only at the beginning of this evolution, wherein ICT domains fully converge. In this context, technical standardization plays a key role, for example to connect all ICT components, to make them interoperable and prevent vendor lock-in, to support the integration of multiple data sources or to provide the security and safety of the next digital world.
