One key benefit to being part of the group is it happens to be vendor neutral and and focused towards any technology platform although the open standards contribute to making companies leverage on the common strength of the best practices gathered from across diverse verticals and industry segments. You need a tribe to grow your sphere of influence and being seen having a strong presence in your area of interest. Being part of a larger community helps you banking on the common strength of the community and has the advantage of taking your offerings to a larger audience. Apart from having used some Open Group standards for SOA, ARM 4.0 (application response time measurement) , Security and has a bankable list of assets which can be a ready reference when confronted with some industry issue that you end up dealing with for the first time.
