The Open Mobile Alliance (OMA) is the leading industry forum for developing market driven, interoperable
mobile service enablers.
OMA was formed in June 2002 by nearly 200 companies including the world’s
leading mobile operators, device and network suppliers, information technology
companies and content and service providers. The fact that the whole value chain
is represented in OMA marks a change in the way specifications for mobile
services are done. Rather than keeping the traditional approach of organizing
activities around "technology silos", with different standards and
specifications bodies representing different mobile technologies, working
independently, OMA is aiming to consolidate into one organization all
specification activities in the service enabler space.
