Survey shows need for standards in mobile payments space

OASIS CEO, Laurent Liscia, blogs: Fragmentation of the mobile payments eco-system is the chief obstacle to adoption, and standards would solve this problem. Standards would include NFC to cover security to prevent hijacking or snooping on the payment (so the NSA can't find out you have a caffeine habit), identity (so your uncle Bert can't blow your hard-earned cash at a black-jack table), and privacy (so the Big Data cowboys can't profile you for gain). Read the full blog.

Universal Business Language TC publishes Committee Note and invites translation contributions

UBL Conformance to ebXML CCTS ISO/TS 15000-5:2005 describes how UBL 2.1 relates to the ebXML Core Components Technical Specification. Congratulations to TC chairs, Ken Holman and Tim McGrath, to Sponsors, Boeing, NEC, Oracle, and the US Dept of Defense, and to all UBL TC members.

In related news, the TC invites the public to contribute to the OASIS UBL 2.1 International Data Dictionary (IDD). The IDD provides readers of languages other than English with a culturally-sensitive translation of the semantics of UBL business documents and objects. Contributing to the IDD is an interesting and meaningful project for students, interns, or anyone with a need to learn more about UBL.


TC publishes Transformational Government Framework

TGF 2.0 is a practical 'how to' standard for the design and implementation of an effective program of technology-enabled change at national, state or local government level. It describes a managed process that centers on the needs of citizens and businesses and achieves significant and transformational impacts on the efficiency and effectiveness of government. Congratulations to TC chair, John Borras, to Foundational Sponsor, Microsoft, to Sponsors, Fujitsu, Oracle, and the US Program Manager Information Sharing Environment, and to all TGF TC members.
