New Paper published by Peter O’Kelly – Revisiting Open Document Format and Office Open XML: The Quiet Revolution Continues

Three years ago Peter O’Kelly wrote a paper titled, “What’s Up, .DOC? Open XML Formats, OpenDocument Format, and the Revolutionary Implications of XML in Productivity Applications.” That paper was a part of an industry-wide debate about Open XML and ODF. He has recently published a new paper that analyzes the current state of document formats.

This new paper, Revisiting Open Document Format and Office Open XML: The Quiet Revolution Continues, discusses:

  • The business value of standardized, XML based document formats
  • A brief history of Open XML and ODF
  • The 2008 Open XML ISO controversy, and the response to Peter’s “What’s Up, .DOC?” Paper
  • An assessment of current Open XML and ODF market dynamics
  • Current standards activity
  • Projections into the future

It is interesting reading for document format wonks.

    Hi there! This post couldn’t be written any better!
    Looking through this article reminds me of my previous roommate!

    He continually kept preaching about this. I am going to forward this information to
    him. Fairly certain he’s going to have a good read.
    Thank you for sharing!
