Subject: RE: [ebxml-dev] INTEROPERABILITY SUMMIT
James, Below is a nice summary note that OMG's Richard Soley addressed to summit participants. You can also find an article authored by Alan Kotok at: http://www.xml.com/pub/a/2001/12/12/kotok.html Best Regards, Chuck Allen HR-XML -----Original Message----- From: Richard Mark Soley [mailto:email@example.com] Sent: Wednesday, December 12, 2001 6:09 PM To: summit participants Subject: Follow-up to the Interoperability Summit Dear Interoperability Summiteer, As promised at the Summit last week, to support the continuing multi-organization collaboration we discussed, OMG has created as a shared resource a new mailing list, comprised of the union of the group that organized the Interoperability Summit just completed in Orlando (the so-called "Common Models" group), and all of the people who registered and/or attended the Summit. Thank you for your interest and participation in the event. Your receipt of this message is to let you know that you are on this list, firstname.lastname@example.org (email@example.com for short). If you would rather not be on this list, by all means send a note to firstname.lastname@example.org to be taken off and I apologize for adding to your mail traffic. As a recap, I wanted to make the first use of this list the announcement of the agreement made by and between HR-XML, OASIS, OMG and XBRL during the summit. Each of the organizations agreed to: 1. telecons as necessary but at least quarterly to review potential overlaps 2. semiannual Interoperability Summit events of the same structure, with the 2nd day focussed on different technology areas each time 3. notify each other and the Summit community of new work items 4. liaise with each other based on new work item announcements as necessary 5. insert into each organization's process some way to ensure that the members look at other organizations' work On point 2, each of the Summit events would focus on some business infrastructure process of interest to a wide group of organizations. The second Interoperability Summit event is already scheduled for June 27-28, again in Orlando, at the Caribe Royale Hotel. We intend to keep the same structure as this event, with the first day focussed on generic organization interoperability issues and the second on Procurement standards. Keep an eye on http://www.omg.org/interop/ or any of the sponsors' web sites for further information. The four organizations have agreed to cosponsor this upcoming event. If your organization is also interested in participating, by all means please send a note to email@example.com describing your organization and interest. More importantly, if any other organizations are willing to sign up to the "five step program" outlined above, I know we all (and all of our members!) would be delighted to hear it. This mailing list (firstname.lastname@example.org) is quite appropriate for that conversation. Thanks again for your participation in this first Intoperability Summit event. Speaking for myself and OMG, we were very heartened by the real spirit of compromise and working together between the groups; listening to each other and sharing our experience is the first good result of this process. Best regards, -- Richard Soley P.S. Presentation materials that we have received have been posted to the agenda page for the event last week (at http://www.omg.org/interop/program.htm) -- if your presentation isn't there please send it to me! Also, some photos from Thursday are online at http://www.soley.com/cgi-bin/showzip?20011206 -- corrections to the captions more than welcome!
