The Open Data Format (O-DF), an Open Group Internet of Things (IoT) standard, represents information about things in a standardized way that can be understood and exchanged by all information systems that manage IoT-related data. In the IoT, information about a product or a “Thing” is often distributed over many different devices, systems, and organizations. The O-DF can be used for publishing the available data using ordinary URL (Uniform Resource Locator) addresses. O-DF structures can also be used for requesting and sending published data between systems, notably when used together with the O-MI standard.
Updated in September 2017 to apply Technical Corrigendum No. 1 (U173), which updates Appendix A.
