Subject: Proposal for SAML Adoption Subcommittee

As follow-up from Tuesday’s call, here is the formal proposal for the creation of a SAML Adoption Subcommittee.  This will discussed on the Sept. 13 concall






SAML Adoption Subcommittee
The primary purpose of the OASIS SAML Adoption subcommittee is to promote the adoption of the SAML standard within large organizations. 

The SAML Adoption subcommittee will achieve this by recommending and executing on a marketing plan and coordinating efforts with the SAML SSTC.
Initially the SAML Adoption subcommittee will promote the work of the SAML Specification release(s) and will align with ongoing SAML technical efforts post release of the SAML Specification(s).
The scope of the OASIS SAML Adoption Subcommittee is to create and coordinate member communications and outbound communications. The Adoption Subcommittee shall supervise press and analyst relations such as briefings, releases, and announcements to promote the adoption of SAML for identity federation. It shall manage communications to OASIS SAML members and end-users and recruit new members through the OASIS SAML website, collateral, newsletters, and webinars. 
To promote SAML positioning and the value proposition, the Adoption Subcommittee shall update existing white papers, FAQs, overview documents and user scenarios as well as create new materials as needed. The Adoption Subcommittee will also establish relationships with other organizations concerned with federated identity to ensure inclusion of SAML when appropriate. This Subcommittee will also assist in coordinating the promotional efforts of member companies relating to SAML.
