A consortium of leading technology companies today announced the
creation of the Open Mashup Alliance (http://www.openmashup.org),
an organization dedicated to the successful use of Enterprise Mashup
technologies and adoption of an open language that promotes Enterprise
Mashup interoperability and portability.
The Open Mashup Alliance (OMA) founding members includes leading
software vendors, consulting companies, technology service providers and
industry leaders that share a common interest in promoting the open,
free-to-use Enterprise Mashup Markup Language (EMML) for the
development, interoperability and compatibility of Enterprise Mashup
offerings. The charter members of the OMA include Adobe, Bank
of America, Capgemini,
& Company, HP,
The EMML specification will be governed under the Creative
Commons License and supported by a free-to-use EMML reference
runtime engine. The Open Mashup Alliance will steward and enhance the
EMML v1.0 specification for future contribution to a standards body.
“We are very excited to be a founding member of Open Mashup Alliance and
to foster mashup interoperability and portability through an open
language. EMML was designed specifically to address the needs of
Enterprise Mashup developers. We are proud to contribute this
industry-proven language to the mashup community,” said Deepak Alur,
Vice President of Engineering at JackBe
and co-author of “Core J2EE Patterns.”
Membership in the Open Mashup Alliance is open to all organizations or
individuals with an interest in the advancement of EMML and Enterprise
Mashup interoperability and compatibility. More information is available
on the Open Mashup Alliance website at www.openmashup.org.
The EMML specification, along with a supporting runtime reference
implementation, documentation, and sample code, is also available on the
Statements from Charter Members:
“Using Adobe’s Rich Internet Applications (RIA) technology, enterprise
customers are exploring mashups to deliver contextual, task centric
workspaces that aggregate information from different backend
applications. Together with the founding members of the Open Mashup
Alliance, Adobe will continue to encourage the interoperability and
compatibility of different mashup platforms to help accelerate adoption
in the enterprise,” said Kumar Vora, vice president and general manager
for LiveCycle at Adobe.
Michael Ogrinz, principal architect at Bank
of America and author of the book ‘Mashup Patterns’ commented, “For
enterprise mashups to take hold, we need to remove the ‘vendor lock-in’
concerns raised by today’s proprietary toolsets. We also need to inspire
the innovative minds of the open-source community to start working in
this space. By establishing an open standard for mashups, the OMA and
EMML addresses both of these issues.”
"Capgemini clients around the world are achieving excellent results with
Enterprise Mashup solutions but know their risk can be reduced and their
value can be increased by solutions that are built upon standardized
vendor products. We are pleased to be a founding member in this
association with these key objectives," said Andy Mulholland, Global CTO
and co-author of the book “Mashup Corporations.”
"The Open Mashup Alliance offers organizations a proven, standardized
model that will help increase mashup adoption in organizations, increase
flexibility and choice in agile integration scenarios, and reduce the
risk and cost for many kinds of IT projects," said Dion Hinchcliffe,
founder of Web 2.0 University and president of Hinchcliffe
“Enterprises can accelerate return on investment, reduce the risks of
mashup efforts and deliver real-time reporting of dynamic information to
business users by adopting industry-wide open standards like EMML,” said
Tim Hall, Director, SOA Center, HP.
“HP's collaboration with Open Mashup Alliance members to promote the
standard design of mashups will help customers advance their SOA
initiatives by allowing them to provide a rich user experience on top of
their web services.”
“With over 300 global enterprises using Kapow Technologies, the delivery
of real-time Web data to mashups is essential for enabling business
agility,” says Stefan Andreasen, Founder and CTO of Kapow
Technologies. “And the efforts of the Open Mashup Alliance are key
in creating standards such as EMML to drive the interoperability of
mashup offerings and will lead to greater benefits for more
“At ProgrammableWeb we have tracked the evolution of enterprise mashups
and have seen first-hand the challenges posed by lack of compatibility
across mashup platforms. By establishing open standards such as EMML,
the Open Mashup Alliance is addressing these issues by enabling product
interoperability, reducing risk, and ultimately creating new
opportunities for enterprises implementing mashups,” said John Musser,
founder of ProgrammableWeb.
"Dozens of government transparency and openness initiatives are being
supported by mashup implementations. The OMA and EMML will give
Synteractive's public sector clients better interoperability and
portability of these mashup solutions," said Evan Burfield, CEO of Synteractive.
Stephane Dubois, CEO and founder of on-demand market data provider Xignite
said, “As a commercial web service pioneer, Xignite has seen our clients
speed up their consumption of on-demand data and open APIs as they
become easier to consume and mashup into applications. An initiative
like the OMA will accelerate this trend and reduce application
development complexity and data management costs for enterprises. We are
excited to join our efforts with those of other OMA charter members.”
