In this issue:

Standards and innovation go hand-in-hand

Laurent Liscia, OASIS CEO, blogs:
We have a sense of who we are. Who do we need to be? Business wisdom dictates that we need to be even more of who we are: more agile, more rapid, more transparent. We may also need to understand standards in a broader sense: what is getting standardized today can be anything from an Open Source API to a pattern to a best practice. It makes sense to shift our focus from standards in the strict definition to interoperability as a whole, and reach out to a variety of partners to reduce the fragmentation of the standards landscape.
