These are exciting times for SALI. The support for the matter standard continues to build, and we have significant interest from all sides of the industry, accelerating growth in our membership. I am delighted to list our current endorsers and members below. As word spreads about SALI’s existence and purpose, more are joining in our cause.
On the standards side – the team there has made significant progress. Based on my past standards experience, I am very impressed with the efforts and output of this group. I fully expect our Version 1.0 Draft Standard will be ready in February (at the Legal Week program) per our plans. Following that release, Microsoft and Greenberg Traurig are prepared to run Reference Implementations with the standard. These live implementations will prove out the effectiveness of the standard in real-world situations. As a bonus, these two organizations are looking to collaborate and have their deployments work together since Microsoft is a client of Greenberg. This will be a uniquely valuable step in proving out the standard as the feedback from this will be used to further refine the standard into a final version ready for publication.
Thank you to everyone involved in moving this forward and to those in advance who will soon be joining the effort.
