Subject: RE: [opencsa-ms] SCA/SDO Market Awareness Road-show


I am in favor of this being done as an Open CSA supported activity, if such a thing is allowed.  If it is, I hope that the materials could be made available to the member section for review and comment (not necessarily approval).

Subject: [opencsa-ms] SCA/SDO Market Awareness Road-show


Dear Steering Committee,

IBM is planning a set of half-day seminars through the remainder of 2008 to present and promote SCA/SDO technology from a vendor-neutral viewpoint in order to raise market awareness of these technologies. We are not promoting IBM products as part of this initiative, although we will use Tuscany as it's one of the few SCA runtime offerings available today. The initiative comes from Karla Norsworthy's Standards organization, not WebSphere's marketing organization, so I emphasize: it is vendor-neutral. The seminars will be presented by Doug Tidwell, who also spoke about SCA at JavaOne this year.

The first 3 seminars will be in China at the end of this month. Doug intends to continue in Europe & the USA in ~ October to December. Current details are at: <http://www.ibm.com/developerworks/offers/techbriefings/details/scasdo.html>.

We are interested in making the Europe/USA seminars either multi-vendor, or even OASIS Open CSA supported, if the interest exists. We're happy to explore any option in line with objectives of promoting the technologies, not vendor products. With greater multi-vendor support, we could expand this initiative and reach even more developers. Another benefit may be to encourage more real end-users to join the TCs that will commence in September.

If there is no interest, then so be it; IBM will continue a more limited program. If there is interest in doing this as a multi-vendor, or an Open CSA backed program, please let me know and we can commence some planning, or initiate an adoption sub-committee; whatever is practical in line with OASIS guidelines.....
