Subject: Re: [tgf] Consulting Engagement

Yes Peter I understand the role OASIS should play as a standards body, distinct from the consultants who would then do the related commercial engagements. Defining the nature of this relationship would be part of what to include in this consulting pack that could also be part of their OASIS membership (IPR agreements etc.).

I`ve also just been discussing this point with Laurent, that I can see good opportunity to engage with the Cap Geminis, PwCs, Deloittes, ... etc. with these programs and co-op marketing activities as the incentives for them to join, so it would be helpful to list the TC assets they would be entitled to when they join.

There are some initial intro slides material for an upcoming webinar that we could add to, to get the ball rolling..

Kind regards, Neil.

Thanks for raising this important point – and not an easy one to deal with….

My quick take would be that this has little to do with the core OASIS business model: OASIS makes its money from a “pay to play” model for the development of standards and are certainly keen, through various channels to see them taken up and used; but OASIS has no role in nurturing specific SoW’s or contracted work for any party wishing to benefit from the expertize of a TC member or organization: that is usually down to the members themselves to shoulder.


That said, I’m copying in OASIS’ business development manager who has recently talked to the OASIS Board about better ways of promoting the results of our standards work and getting greater traction and buy through, for example, specific marketing groups or campaigns.

The specific sector we are concerned with her e- the public sector in their “post eGov strategies” has been notoriously difficult for us to address. We have had several discussions about how to do this and, certainly, ideas such as white papers, a common slide deck of key issues, case studies, etc. can all help that.

Carol – thoughts?

Hi guys


I`m wondering how governments are enabled to engage with the TGF? I presume they can join OASIS and then the group, but then what?


This would suggest a consulting engagement - Is this supported and if so how?


Resources for this could include:


- Marketing white paper

- PPT deck

- Template documents for SOW engagement

- Template Competency Framework

- etc.
