Responsible in large measure for the integrity and popularity of UNIX is the Single UNIX Specification, a standard of The Open Group. This, according to Andrew Josey, Director of Standards at The Open Group, ensures compatibility across all platforms by providing a level of openness and enabling applications written to the standard to be easily moved across a wide range of platforms because the standard establishes a baseline of core functionality above which suppliers can innovate.
