ISIS Papyrus Becomes Newest OASIS Foundational Sponsor Supporting Open Technology Standards

Vienna and Boston; 31 March 2010 — The international open standards consortium, OASIS, welcomes ISIS Papyrus, a provider of process and content management software solutions, as its newest Foundational Sponsor. ISIS Papyrus joins IBM, Microsoft, Oracle, and Primeton in supporting the mission of OASIS at the highest level.

"ISIS Papyrus is demonstrating its leadership and commitment to advancing open standards. Their support makes it possible for OASIS to promote interoperability, lower cost and provide more freedom of choice for users," said Laurent Liscia, executive director of OASIS. "As a not-for-profit consortium, OASIS relies on Foundational Sponsors like ISIS Papyrus to ensure that all those affected by standards have a voice in their development. We applaud ISIS Papyrus for its role in making this possible."

ISIS Papyrus will apply its expertise in content management and adaptive process technologies with participation in several OASIS standards initiatives, including the Content Management Interoperability Services (CMIS) Technical Committee and the Darwin Information Typing Architecture (DITA) Technical Committee, with others to be determined.

"Over the years, we have repeatedly experienced the necessity for open standards when installing the Papyrus Platform as the umbrella user front end for financial institutions that need to backend-connect a number of silo applications," said Max J. Pucher, chief architect at ISIS Papyrus. "We look forward to advancing open standards related to content and process management as well as security and chose to work with OASIS as the leading standards organization in these areas."

OASIS also announced that Robin Cover, managing editor of the Cover Pages, will be speaking at the ISIS Papyrus Open House and User Conference 2010 in the Dallas area on 24 May. Recipient of the XML Cup, Cover maintains what is widely regarded as the most comprehensive online repository on structured information standards.
