Novell announced that it will turn over significant directory-related research and intellectual property to a key standards body to help accelerate the development and adoption of an industry-wide approach to integrating directory technology into eBusiness. Novell, whose NDS? eDirectory? has led the directory market for the last nine years, will be contributing research on its DirXML?, a data sharing and synchronization product, to the Organization for the Advancement of Structured Information Standards (OASIS). OASIS will use Novell's expertise to help accelerate the development of the Directory Service Markup Language ? an initiative aimed at tying the network and identity management power of the directory with the transaction capabilities of XML, the language of eBusiness. As the only company currently shipping products with this essential application integration capability, Novell brings significant value to the OASIS process, and hopes to help generate new standards that will help companies, service providers, and end users get the most value possible from directory services.
