Subject: OASIS Advances S-RAMP to Promote Interoperability of SOA Repositories

Active Endpoints, HP, IBM, Primeton Technologies, Red Hat, SOA
Software, Software AG, TIBCO, and Others Collaborate to Enable Data
Sharing Across SOA Repositories from Different Vendors

 2 March 2011 – The OASIS international open standards consortium has
gathered the support of leading vendors and users of Service Oriented
Architecture (SOA) repositories to address a critical interoperability
issue. The newly formed OASIS SOA Repository Artifact Model and
Protocol (S-RAMP) Technical Committee will advance a standard for
sharing data across SOA repository products from multiple vendors in
both cloud and non-cloud environments.

Based on a contribution authored by HP, IBM, Software AG, and TIBCO,
the S-RAMP specification defines an SOA repository artifact data model
together with bindings that describe the syntax for interacting with
an SOA repository.

“The goal of this technical committee is to produce a standard that
will eliminate the need to build customized access methods for each
suppliers' SOA repository offerings,” said Vincent Brunssen of IBM and
chair of the OASIS S-RAMP Technical Committee. “A vendor-neutral
approach to accessing the data in SOA repositories is essential to
giving organizations the flexibility to select the tools that work
best for their growing IT infrastructure.”

S-RAMP builds on existing specifications including the SOA Ontology
from The Open Group, the Atom Syndication Format Standard, and the
Atom Publishing Protocol Standard from IETF.

Participation in the S-RAMP Technical Committee is open to all
interested parties. Archives of the Committee's work are accessible to
both members and non-members, and OASIS invites public review and

Support for S-RAMP

“Our clients want the choice and freedom that comes with the ability
to access the data in their SOA repositories in multi-vendor
environments. This is why IBM co-authored the original specification
and are excited so many companies have joined the S-RAMP Technical
Committee. This emerging industry standard is key to the future of SOA
and helping clients use data to grow their business.”
-- Angel Luis Diaz, vice president of software standards

Red Hat
“Red Hat believes that the output of the S-RAMP Technical Committee is
crucial to the next step in the evolution of SOA and is pleased to
support this work.”
-- Dr. Mark Little, Senior Director of Engineering

SOA Software
“SOA Software is pleased to be a Sponsor member of the OASIS S-RAMP
Technical Committee and is committed to driving requirements from its
wide range of enterprise customers into the S-RAMP specification. As
SOA adoption accelerates, IT organizations often need to access
information from multiple SOA repositories. S-RAMP has great potential
to enable customers to better integrate and build closed loop
governance across repositories in the enterprise. Standards such as
S-RAMP add value to customers as well as the whole SOA vendor
-- Brent Carlson, SVP Technology

Software AG
“S-RAMP significantly advances the interoperability of tools that need
to integrate with SOA repository solutions from various vendors. A
vendor-neutral SOA repository information model and standard protocols
to access data is a highly desirable advancement in this space. As
co-authors of the S-RAMP specifications, Software AG is pleased to see
this next major step in becoming an industry standard with the
formation of the OASIS S-RAMP Technical Committee.”
-- Hans-Christoph Rohland, Senior Vice President-Research & Development
