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.
