In a related and similarly brief video, Khosla advises that business plans should run to no more than five or six pages that contain only information on the technology breakthrough, the people involved, the value proposition for the customer, and the marketing and sales strategy.

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.
