ATLANTA, Nov. 17, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- OAGi ( www.oagi.org) today announced that Oracle has contributed its Core Enterprise Business Objects (EBOs) to OAGi. Oracle EBOs are a complete library of more than 90 business object definitions used by Oracle to integrate products from different Oracle application products and product families. EBOs are based on an earlier release of OAGIS and have been contributed in order to harmonize with the current version of OAGIS and preserve an upgrade path for EBO customers. "Oracle has always been a strong supporter of standards and OAGi in particular for our application offerings. Contributing Oracle's OAGIS-based work back to OAGi is a natural extension of our application standards strategy and we look forward to a continuing a collaborative relationship with OAGi and its stakeholders for many years to come," said Garret Minakawa, Director, SCM Product Strategy at Oracle. In response to this contribution, OAGi has formed an AIA EBO Working Group to analyze each of the business objects and begin the process of merging them into the OAGIS standard. "Oracle's contribution to the Open Applications Group will allow us to leverage the improvements to the standards that we support, use, and help develop," said Kevin Himka, Senior Information Integration Architect - The Boeing Company. "Collaborating on industry standards like OAGIS ensures that we are using the same common business language which makes life easier for our customers and suppliers." "We are pleased about Oracle's contribution to the Open Applications Group. This provides a transition plan for the Oracle Enterprise Business Objects and ensures risk mitigation for our investment," said Joel Lipetzky, Director of Integration and e-Business for Land O'Lakes. "We are strong believers and promoters of OAGIS as the syntax-neutral standard for the future, leveraging it as our canonical model and using it in numerous APIs."
