Subject: March 5, 2001 Seattle XML agenda: BPMI

Jeepers, now BPMI is doing B2B!  :-)

Why not converge with ebXML BP.  What's the problem, that causes
a need for BPMI to build its own 3rd party BP?

This will be an interesting program, if true!  Internal integration
is the whole object model, and method calls for Add, Update, Delete
and 1000 other fine-grained things.  Dealing with sovereign 3rd parties,
the verbs are only "request" and "response", especially in new
business relationships.

Ismael Ghalimi, the CEO of Intalio said,

 "...the mere existence of BPMI.org will have a strong impact on
  ebXML: it will force ebXML to decide wether they should focus on
  Collaborative Business Processes or compete directly with BPMI.org. "

It is probably a reasonable thing to point out that your company,
XMLFund, is sponsor of Seattle XML SIG's website and also a
related party in Intalio.  I hope it doesn't undermine the ebXML,

Hope we're still friends!
