Project management

OASIS endorses the OSLC PROMCODE standard for exchanging project management information across organizational boundaries

Fujitsu, IBM, NEC and others define a common interface for the systematic sharing of software lifecycle project management information

BOSTON, MA, USA, April 11, 2022 / — OASIS Open, the global open source and standards consortium, announced that its members have approved OSLC PROMCODE Version 1.0 as the OASIS standard, a status that signifies the highest level of ratification. Developed by the OSLC Lifecycle Integration for Project Management of Contracted Delivery Technical Committee, OSLC PROMCODE is designed to address the need for systematic sharing of project management information within and between organizations.

Global software delivery is commonplace today. With ever-increasing pressure, such as faster delivery, competitive cost, and skill availability, it is becoming common for software delivery to occur through the collaboration of multiple organizations forming a chain of carriers and vendors. Resembling the traditional manufacturing industry supply chain, this software delivery trend is often referred to as a software supply chain (SSC). SSC is a new software delivery paradigm, where carriers and vendors work together.

“Effective collaboration between an acquirer and supplier in the software supply chain requires that activities be managed and information shared across organizational boundaries. As the number of organizations involved in delivering software increases, the need for more systematic and standards-based information sharing and coordination becomes critical,” said Tsutomu Kamimura, Chair of the OSLC PROMCODE Technical Committee. “OSLC PROMCODE enables customers and vendors to manage project management data through a standard interface across organizations and reduces the risk of project delays and cost overruns.”

Participation in the OASIS OSLC PROMCODE Technical Committee is open to all businesses, non-profit groups, governments, academic institutions, and individuals through OASIS membership. As with all OASIS projects, the archives of the Committee’s work are accessible to both members and non-members. OASIS also hosts an open mailing list for public comment.
