Subject: RE: [announce] New SOA Standards white paper

I am bemused as to how "OASIS" has authored such a document without the involvement of Technical Committees that may have a stake in such a paper. I believe the SOA-RM TC approved this document, but I don't remember other OASIS Members or TCs having the chance to review and comment. 

Without diminishing the work of the SOA-RM TC, I would request that  a disclaimer is added to this document to reflect that this represents the views of one TC and not necessarily the view of all OASIS Members.

> Subject: [announce] New SOA Standards white paper
> Members of OASIS, OMG, and The Open Group announce the publication of a new white paper, "Navigating
> the SOA Open Standards Landscape Around Architecture." The paper was produced to help the SOA
> community at large navigate the myriad of overlapping technical products produced by these
> organizations with specific emphasis on the 'A' in SOA; i.e., Architecture.
> This joint white paper explains and positions standards for SOA reference models, ontologies,
> reference architectures, maturity models, modeling languages, and governance. It outlines where the
> works are similar, highlights the strengths of each body of work, and touches on how the work can be
> used together in complementary ways. It is also meant as a guide to users of these specifications for
> selecting the technical products most appropriate for their needs, consistent with where they are
> today and where they plan to head on their SOA journeys.
> "We recognize the value of cooperative, inter-organizational SOA standards development," said Duane
> Nickull of Adobe, chair of the OASIS SOA Reference Model Technical Committee. "The SOA paradigm is
> huge, and there is much work to be done. Coordination between groups ensures that related SOA
> standards will work together without unnecessary overlap, contradiction or redundancy."
> "This paper is an excellent start to reducing the confusion about SOA standards that there has been in
> the market place, by explaining the relative positions of the architecture-related SOA standards of
> OASIS, the OMG and The Open Group," said Dr. Chris Harding, Forum Director for SOA and Semantic
> Interoperability, The Open Group. It is the result of excellent and effective co-operation between the
> three bodies, which we hope and expect will continue."
> "SOA is strategic for enabling the agile creation and integration of business applications at IBM."
> said Jim Amsden of IBM, co-chair of the OMG Analysis and Design Task Force and co-chair of the OMG
> SoaML Finalization Task Force and one of the authors of the OMG SoaML standard. "Standards provide the
> foundation for interoperability and integration needed to achieve success with SOA. The positioning of
> these standards helps minimize fragmentation and confusion in the SOA market. This paper also provides
> a context in which to collaboratively evolve the standards leading to better supporting products and
> best practices. We encourage the continuing collaboration between OMG, the Open Group and OASIS to
> help achieve the SOA value proposition."
> The white paper, "Navigating the SOA Open Standards Landscape Around Architecture," is published on
> the web sites of all three organizations:
