OASIS Standard ballots open for OData

Two ballots for OData specifications are now underway and will close 24 Feb. OData 4.0 is a REST-based Web protocol that builds on HTTP, AtomPub, and JSON using URIs to address and access data feed resources. It enables information to be accessed from a variety of sources including (but not limited to) relational databases, file systems, content management systems, and traditional Web sites. OData JSON Format 4.0 extends the core specification by defining representations for OData requests and responses. The OData specifications were developed by OASIS Foundational Sponsors, IBM and Microsoft, and by Sponsors, Axway, BlackBerry, CA, Citrix, Progress Software, Red Hat, SAP, and SDL. All organizational members of OASIS are encouraged to vote on the two OData specifications; those who wish to discuss the ballots may do so on the OASIS member discuss list.

Technical standards for document formats may not set the pulse racing – it may not sound like the first shot in a revolution. But be in no doubt: the adoption of open standards in government threatens the power of lock-in to propriety vendors yet it will give departments the power to choose what is right for them and the citizens who use their services.
