The BCM team is pleased to announce that the OASIS BCM V1.0 specifications are now recently approved as an OASIS standard specification according to the OASIS approved process.


The purpose of the OASIS Business-Centric Methodology (BCM) TC is to develop a specification which will provide business managers with a set of clearly defined methods with which to acquire agile and interoperable e-business information systems within communities of interests.

There is a quick overview and introductory brochure on BCM.
A powerpoint presentation (used at the OASIS symposium at New Orleans) explains the role of BCM when using XML for a Reliable Infrastructure.
A supporting powerpoint presented at the WWW Semantic Grid Workshop defines the role of BCM when developing e-business Grid / P2P capabilities.
