OASIS Standard vote opens for Symptoms Automation Framework (SAF)

Balloting for the Symptoms Automation Framework (SAF) 1.0 is now underway and will close 21 Jan. SAF is a tool in the automatic detection, optimization, and remediation of operational aspects of complex systems, notably data centers, that provides a non-normative XML data model, based on a pseudo schema and an XSD. The specification was developed by representatives of OASIS Foundational Sponsors, IBM, as well as CA Technologies, Fujitsu, and others. All organizational members of OASIS are encouraged to vote on SAF; those who wish to discuss the ballot may do so on the OASIS member discussion list.

Public reviews begin for MQTT,
IDCloud Gap Analysis and VIRTIO Device

Message Queuing Telemetry Transport (MQTT) 3.1.1 is a lightweight Client Server publish/subscribe messaging transport protocol used for communication in M2M/IoT contexts where a small code footprint is required and/or network bandwidth is at a premium. This public review ends 11 Feb.

Identity in the Cloud Gap Analysis 1.0 provides an analysis of gaps or requirements that may exist in current identity management standards. This public review ends 23 Jan.

Virtual IO Device 1.0 describes the specifications of the "virtio" family of devices, which are found in virtual environments but are not all that different from physical devices. The purpose of the virtio is to simplify virtual devices by making them more extensible and recognizable. This public review ends 31 Jan.

XMILE presents Big Data in Retail webinar

On 28 Jan, the XMILE TC and the System Dynamics Society will co-host an interactive conversation on how retailers can integrate Big Data simulations into their IT infrastructure, identify component libraries, and re-use the pieces in new solutions with greater scope and complexity. The discussion will build on previous XMILE webinars on climate change, health reform, and financial services. Everyone is welcome to attend and participate. Other upcoming XMILE webinars will focus on 'Energy Market Dynamics' (11 Feb) and 'Regional Planning with GIS (4 Mar).
"OSLC is already gaining momentum in engineering industries and its use in enterprise IT through wider adoption within ALM is to be welcomed. Ideally users need standards for both linking and synchronization. OSLC is an important step on that path, it will help reduce errors and costs.”

Michael Azoff,
Principal Analyst, Ovum
