Companies Demonstrate Interoperability of Service Provisioning Mark-up Language
(SPML) OASIS Standard

BMC Software, CA, Citrix, Oracle, Sun, and Others Collaborate on Service
Provisioning InterOp at Burton Catalyst 06 
San Francisco, CA, USA; 14 June 2006 -- Six international companies joined
together to demonstrate interoperability of the Service Provisioning Mark-up
Language (SPML) version 2.0 at the Burton Catalyst 06 conference in San
Francisco today. Developed by the OASIS Provisioning Services Technical
Committee, SPML is an approved OASIS Standard that lets companies manage the
provisioning and allocation of identity information and system resources within
and between organizations.

"The SPML OASIS InterOp at Catalyst is a milestone in the development of a
standards-based approach for the management of user identities across
heterogeneous applications," stated Mark Diodati, analyst for Burton Group's
Identity and Privacy Strategies. "Products that leverage SPML can help
organizations provide user access to resources without custom provisioning

The Catalyst demonstration scenarios involve a group of companies that
outsource various services to application service providers (ASPs). Each ASP
publishes a SPML interface for provisioning accounts. Each company uses a SPML
client that makes provisioning requests to the ASPs as needed. The roles of
company and ASP are interchangeable among all six InterOp participants. 

"Both provisioning vendors and their customers benefit from the increased
standardization that 
SPML 2.0 offers," said Jeff Bohren of BMC Software, co-chair of the OASIS
Provisioning Services Technical Committee and participant in the InterOp.
"Today's demonstration showed how smoothly SPML interoperates among products
and users, resulting in lower costs and quicker implementations. The range of
systems that support SPML is exciting, and demand in the marketplace for SPML
support continues to grow."

Members of the OASIS Provisioning Services Technical Committee include
representatives of BEA Systems, BMC Software, CA, Capgemini, Hewlett-Packard,
IBM, Microsoft, Oracle, SAP, SOA Software, Sun Microsystems, and others.
Participation remains open to all, and suppliers, end-users, and systems
integrators are invited to join OASIS to advance the continued development and
adoption of SPML. OASIS hosts an open mail list for public comment and the
spml-dev mailing list for exchanging information on implementing the standard.
