OAG and STEP convergence

Just back from a convergence meeting between OAGi and STEP (Standard for the Exchange of Product Model Data). Lots of players including OMG PLM services, OASIS PLCS TC, Eurostep, PDES inc, etc. This is one of many convergence efforts building upon OAGIS as a platform. It is great to see so many standards coming together and doing the right thing. Sometimes the standards world can get distracted with egos and agendas and competition (to put it nicely). But it seems like convergence is the name of the game now and the rush to build upon OAGIS as a platform is becoming a stampede. Lots of work to do, but that is a good problem to have.

Some great upcoming news on OAGIS as a platform, so stay tuned!
