Subject: [announce] New SOA Standards white paper
To: announce@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx    (05)

Members of OASIS, OMG, and The Open Group announce the publication of
a new white paper, "Navigating the SOA Open Standards Landscape Around
Architecture." The paper was produced to help the SOA community at
large navigate the myriad of overlapping technical products produced
by these organizations with specific emphasis on the 'A' in SOA; i.e.,
Architecture.    (06)

This joint white paper explains and positions standards for SOA
reference models, ontologies, reference architectures, maturity
models, modeling languages, and governance. It outlines where the
works are similar, highlights the strengths of each body of work, and
touches on how the work can be used together in complementary ways. It
is also meant as a guide to users of these specifications for
selecting the technical products most appropriate for their needs,
consistent with where they are today and where they plan to head on
their SOA journeys.    (07)

"We recognize the value of cooperative, inter-organizational SOA
standards development," said Duane Nickull of Adobe, chair of the
OASIS SOA Reference Model Technical Committee. "The SOA paradigm is
huge, and there is much work to be done. Coordination between groups
ensures that related SOA standards will work together without
unnecessary overlap, contradiction or redundancy."    (08)

"This paper is an excellent start to reducing the confusion about SOA
standards that there has been in the market place, by explaining the
relative positions of the architecture-related SOA standards of OASIS,
the OMG and The Open Group," said Dr. Chris Harding, Forum Director
for SOA and Semantic Interoperability, The Open Group. It is the
result of excellent and effective co-operation between the three
bodies, which we hope and expect will continue."    (09)

"SOA is strategic for enabling the agile creation and integration of
business applications at IBM." said Jim Amsden of IBM, co-chair of the
OMG Analysis and Design Task Force and co-chair of the OMG SoaML
Finalization Task Force and one of the authors of the OMG SoaML
standard. "Standards provide the foundation for interoperability and
integration needed to achieve success with SOA. The positioning of
these standards helps minimize fragmentation and confusion in the SOA
market. This paper also provides a context in which to collaboratively
evolve the standards leading to better supporting products and best
practices. We encourage the continuing collaboration between OMG, the
Open Group and OASIS to help achieve the SOA value proposition."    (010)

The white paper, "Navigating the SOA Open Standards Landscape Around
Architecture," is published on the web sites of all three
organizations:    (011)
