The report of the BIM Interoperability Expert Group (BIEG), published in March 2020 suggests that ‘Openness, in relation to data and information, means that it is provided or made available in a format that can be accessed and used without recourse to the software that generated it. Openness is the opposite of proprietary, where information and data are in the generating software’s native format and may or may not be able to be opened by other software.’
