OASIS Ups its ODF Activity, Too


March 7, 2006 12:24 pm





Following on last week’s creation of the ODF Alliance, OASIS announced today its launching of an ODF Adoption technical committee. Novell is a member of the newly former committee, along with IBM and Sun, and OASIS invites others to join. The ODF Adoption committee will focus on growing the number of ODF conforming products in the market through educating vendors and customers on the value of an open file format. The Committee will create white papers, FAQs, overview documents, case studies, and other educational materials on ODF, and serve as a community-building resource by providing ODF information through the OASIS and websites and other outreach. In constrast, the ODF Alliance’s work is aimed at helping shape public policy around ODF. So these are complementary initiatives. The new committee will also work closely with the existing OASIS Open Document Format for Office Applications (OpenDocument) technical committee, which continues to drive work on the standard, itself. This is another demonstration of the increasing momentum behind open standards in the marketplace.
