Axway, Bank of America, Deutsche Boerse, Goldman Sachs, INETCO, JPMorgan Chase, Kaazing, Microsoft, my-Channels, Red Hat, Software AG, VMware, Zenika and Others Move AMQP Forward Through Open Standards Process
1 Nov 2011 – The OASIS international open standards consortium announced the formation of a new Technical Committee for the Advanced Message Queuing Protocol (AMQP). A platform-agnostic solution for business messaging, AMQP provides organizations with an easier, more secure approach to passing real-time data streams and business transactions. The OASIS Technical Committee will advance the contributed AMQP version 1.0 through the international open standards process.
"The implications of AMQP are potentially far-reaching. It could provide open interoperability, thereby reducing the cost of enterprise-quality messaging and making new kinds of applications practical," said W. Roy Schulte, VP and Distinguished Analyst, Gartner Research. "AMQP's move to OASIS marks a significant milestone in its evolution that will likely provide a significant boost in visibility and market interest."
"An efficient and open wire-level messaging protocol is a must for multi-vendor communications within the cloud," said Angus Telfer of INETCO, co-chair of the OASIS AMQP Technical Committee. "AMQP fills that position in a vendor neutral way."
"The formation of the OASIS AMQP Technical Committee is an important next step in the advancement of AMQP as an open and interoperable messaging protocol. We expect the work done by the AMQP Technical Committee to open up new possibilities in business messaging," said Ram Jeyaraman of Microsoft, who also co-chairs the OASIS AMQP Technical Committee.
Current AMQP applications are as diverse as financial front office trading, ocean observation, computer-generated animation, and online gaming. Many operating systems include AMQP implementations, and many application frameworks are AMQP-aware. There are Cloud-hosted offerings of AMQP, and it is embedded in virtualization infrastructure.
The OASIS AMQP Technical Committee currently has more than 50 members representing global financial service institutions, infrastructure providers, and integration, transaction and networking specialists from around the world. Participation is open to all interested parties, and new members may join at any time. Archives of the Committee's work are accessible to both members and non-members, and OASIS invites public review and comment on the work.
