ODA is a non-profit technology consortium with broad industry support.
Sharing the cost
By sharing the cost of development for complex projects, ODA members develop solutions for far less money than any single company could do alone.
Experienced development team
The focal point is ODA’s professional, experienced development team. We work closely with members to ensure requirements are met and the highest standards for quality are maintained.
With independent management, ODA has the necessary autonomy to serve its members fairly. A board of directors comprised of ODA Founding members is a further safeguard to keep the organization on track. It’s a business model that works.
