Representatives from Nokia Corp., Oracle Corp. and IBM Corp. have joined the Organization for the Advancement of Structured Information Standards' (OASIS) board of directors, the organization announced Monday.
Frederick Hirsch of Nokia, Jeff Mischkinsky of Oracle and Michael Weiner of IBM were elected to fill three new seats created through the recent expansion of OASIS' board. The 11-member board also includes representatives of companies such as Hewlett-Packard Co., BEA Systems Inc., Microsoft Corp. and Sun Microsystems Inc.
OASIS, headquartered in Boston, oversees several standards fundamental to Web services, including XML (Extensible Markup Language) and UDDI (Universal Description, Discovery, and Integration). The new directors' terms will expire in 2005.
