Members of the AllSeen Alliance, created by the Linux Foundation, will contribute software and engineering resources as part of their collaboration on an open software framework that enables hardware manufacturers, service providers and software developers to create interoperable devices and services for the emerging Internet of Things.

We caught up with Zeus Kerravala, principal analyst at ZK Research, to get his take on the AllSeen Alliance. He told us this is a step in the right direction.

"The whole concept of Internet of Things is based on the fact that multiple vendors work together to connect what was once unconnected. I don't believe this is something a single vendor can deliver on its own," he said. "Maybe one or two vendors can drive it but certainly they need help from a broader set of companies in order to thrive."

He noted that the World Wide Web itself would not be possible if only one or two companies were behind it. It was the fact that companies like Microsoft had an operating system, Intel had processors, Netscape had a browser, Cisco had the network -- and so on -- to add pieces to complete the puzzle.

"I think you'll see something similar here with the Internet of Things where it ends up being a consortium of a number of vendors that drive it forward," Kerravala said. "This alliance appears to be the first big move toward that."
