Global CIO: Global Banks Form Consortium To Counter HP, IBM, & Oracle

Frustrated by what they see as a lack of
cloud-driven innovation from major IT suppliers, three huge global banks

own highly secure global cloud infrastructure and network rather than
relying on IBM, HP, Oracle, and Microsoft to deliver those solutions in a
timely manner. Focus Areas: BPEL | DITA | ebXML | IDtrust | OpenDocument | SAML | UBL | UDDI
