The Sedona Alliance represents the interests of a community of developers, system integrators, and users promoting the use of the Sedona Framework™ as an open control software environment. Originally developed by Tridium, Inc., Sedona Framework is a software environment designed to make it easy to build smart, networked, embedded devices which are well suited for implementing control applications. Development of the technology is now being assumed by a Sedona community interested in keeping this open-source technology open for all to use. The Sedona Alliance is not affiliated with Tridium, Inc.
The Sedona software environment is ideally suited for graphical representation of control strategies. It has a similar look-and-feel to the popular Niagara Framework™ and it is IP-based. Those with experience with Niagara Framework will have no problem understanding Sedona Framework. For those without Niagara experience, the graphical representation of components linked on a wire sheet to create applications is intuitive and can be easily learned with a minimum of training.
The mission of the Sedona Alliance is to promote Sedona Framework as the premier open control software environment available for use by the public without restriction. The Alliance represents the interests of a Sedona community consisting of developers who make Sedona products, integrators that create Sedona applications, and users that benefit from its deployment.
Initial sponsorship of the Sedona Alliance is by Contemporary Controls that is funding the Sedona Alliance's development and maintenance while contributing technical material to educate the public about Sedona. Others contribute their time and effort without compensation. Membership is open to those who can contribute to the Alliance's mission of making Sedona the premier open control software environment.
The Sedona Alliance's concept of an open controller is one that:
Utilizes an open programming language for implementing control strategies
Utilizes a programming tool available without restriction
Fosters a community of developers and integrators that share technology for the public good
