The author reflects on the implications of standardization on the interoperability of electronic products. He notes that several companies such as Microsoft Corp., and Oracle Corp. have established product standards for security purposes. He also points out the problems occasionally created by standardization which affects the end-user who ultimately operates the products. He suggests the need for these companies to manufacture products with interoperability features.
