 Standards benefit users by eliminating or greatly reducing vendor lock-in, encouraging interoperability and permitting the selection and use of best-of-breed implementations of software components. Suppliers and providers of cloud and grid technology benefit by the increased assurance that such components will work together designed when deployed -- which is especially important in high-usage and automated infrastructures. Software developers also benefit by making use of standard interfaces with well-understood and properly designed behaviors, allowing them to pursue innovation in software internals without having to redesign and re-implement common components for connectivity to other software. ​ Standards benefit users by eliminating or greatly reducing vendor lock-in, encouraging interoperability and permitting the selection and use of best-of-breed implementations of software components.

-In the modern software development world, standards cannot be designed in isolation from feedback from real user, provider and developer usage patterns. [[http://​redmine.ogf.org/​projects/​editor/​wiki/​About_OGF_Documents|The OGF processes]] for document and standards production have been refined to allow close, active communication among all of these contributors with processes that allow for due deliberation but that still provide options for rapid turn-around when needed and timely feedback from the community. We are proud that OGF standards support infrastructures that are used to deliver billions of core-hours of computation,​ move and manage hundreds of petabytes of data, and to control and configure some of the fastest research networks in the world on a daily production basis.+In the modern software development world, standards cannot be designed in isolation from feedback from real user, provider and developer usage patterns.
