Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) September 12, 2012
OAGi (http://www.oagi.org) today announced they are adding capabilities to their Open Applications Group Integration Specification (OAGIS) open standard to support REST processing for their JSON based API’s. These are the most common technologies used for common mobile and cloud platforms. This is being done to enable users to leverage their investment in the OAGIS XML-based open standard for Mobile Business and Cloud Solutions. OAGi just released a Position Paper on this topic that has more detail. You can download it on their web site at http://www.oagi.org.
When OAGi was formed 17 years ago, the vision was to provide a business process based data exchange language standard for B2B, Enterprise Integration, and Enterprise to Execution Systems. The membership decided over time that XML was the best way to express OAGIS for those tasks. Now the membership of OAGi sees their Mobile Business and Cloud Computing initiative as a natural evolution to support these new platforms that enterprises, their customers, and their suppliers are now working with.
This addition to the OAGIS technology makes it possible to provide open standard based applications with full connectivity to all edges of the enterprise, as well as to customers and suppliers.
"Devices coupled with pervasive networks are driving the need for exposing cloud-based data services to enable 'anywhere', 'any time' computing in the ecosystem," added Abhijeet Ranadive, Enterprise B2B Architect, Cisco Systems (CSCO). "APIs that enable this integration paradigm will need to have a standardized light payload format and JSON fits the requirement. Defining the OAGi standard in a JSON format is a way to bring together two best in class solutions to meet the information needs."
“We are pleased that our members such as ADP, Cisco, GXS, and Oracle are leading the way to help transform OAGIS into a tool of the future and to help themselves as well as our other members and users,” said David Connelly, CEO of the Open Applications, Group.
“We intend to keep our XML based version of OAGIS as well and will complement that with this JSON/REST expression of the OAGIS data model and we expect these innovations to provide the basis for our members to offer more powerful solutions and products.”
The OAGIS Standard is used by thousands of organizations worldwide for Mobile Business, Cloud Computing, Business to Business (B2B), Web Services, Service Oriented Architecture (SOA), Master Data Management (MDM), and Application to Application (A2A) interoperability.
Membership in the OAGi community provides many benefits to end-users and solution providers alike through teaching, sharing of best practices, and leading the way in building open standards based solutions.
