Subject: Groups - Annual Meeting F2F at BuilConn in Dallas added

Two years ago, controls industry leaders came together at BuilConn to
launch oBIX, an initiative to utilize IT standards for building management.
 This was intended to provide for more efficient, secure, standard and
Enterprise friendly communications over internal networks and the
At BuilConn this year, we will see that first step is near fruition. Just
about any kind of control system can produce and interact with Web
Services. oBIX will demonstrate interoperability and describe the path to
the first release of its standard. 
However, even with all this progress in Web Services, Control Systems are
still not truly ready for the enterprise. Great progress has been made, but
not yet enough. 
So what is next?:  
Its time to start a dialog about where oBIX goes next. I propose we define
oBIX v2 as the application of common abstract lexicons to each domain under
oBIX. The focus of oBIX v2 will be to provide to the enterprise the
specific business needs of Scheduling, M&V, Performance, Commissioning,
etc. A profile of the oBIX v2 framework, then, might look like:
<li>WS-Buildings HVAC
<li>WS-Buildings Power
<li>WS-Buildings Access Control
<li>WS-Buildings Intrusion Detection
<li>WS-Buildings CCTV
<li>WS-Buildings Occupancy
<li>WS-Buildings Performance (M&V, commissioning)
<li>WS-Buildings Tenant Services
	and, the core protocols that provide the foundation
<li>WS-Buildings Controls (BACNET-WS, LON-WS, and oBIX v1)
oBIX v2 should also encapsulate all operations and services under the
Policy and Security functions as defined in WSDM, WSM, et al. oBIX v2
should also include standard guidance for control silos coming to oBIX,
<li>Standards for other industries to implement their own WS-Buildings
<li>Reference implementations of oBIX as a WS-DM Serives and as a
WS-Management service.
<li>Reference implementation for a combined oBIX/uPNP service
Call to Action:
The annual meeting of oBIX is in Dallas on Monday afternoon, March 21,
before BuilConn. This is an open meeting, and I am inviting not only oBIX
members, but also all parties to come and discuss the future of Web
Services and the Enterprise. There are places at the table for BACNET and
LON, for Web Services and IT, and for Owners and Operators.
It is said, Well begun is half done. Well, we are certainly well begun.
Please help us come and begin the rest.
