In many cases, the end of the year gives you time to step back and take stock of the last 12 months. This is when many of us take a hard look at what worked and what did not, complete performance reviews, and formulate plans for the coming year. For me, it is all of those things plus a time when I u...
W3C Pioneer and Eclipse Advocate Now W3C Advisory Board Member
W3C Pioneer and Eclipse Advocate Now W3C Advisory Board Member

Jean Francois Abramatic, chief product officer at ILOG, has been chosen for the Advisory Board of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). Abramatic is already intimately familiar with the consortium. He was a founding member of W3C, and also served as chairman from 1996 - 2001.

People familiar with Francois' background and achievements are not surprised by the news. He has been recognized for his pioneering work in networking, and the use of new platforms to optimize enterprise-class software components and services. His work has allowed companies to realize the full potential of their IT systems. He has been, since the beginning, one of Eclipse's most ardent supporters.

Abramatic's role in W3C is in keeping with his reputation for creating innovative methodologies and graphics applications for not only corporate clients, but for foreign governments as well. He will chaperone many key issues the W3C faces, regarding strategy, management, legal matters, and process and conflict resolution.

Perhaps more importantly, he will also suggest which industry and technology will require action by W3C, the leading Internet standards organization. He can potentially advance a number of platforms - Eclipse amongst them.

Tim Berners Lee, director, W3C, said, "The Advisory Board is an important vehicle for ensuring that the W3C receives input from the industry and its leading citizens."

Concerning Jean Francois specifically, Berners said, "Jean Francois' insights -- which come from his extensive experience with Web standards, as well as his experience implementing them and understanding how they impact customers -- will be an invaluable contribution to the W3C."

As an executive with ILOG he is responsible for product vision, strategy, design and development, as well as product marketing and management. He is a strong supporter of Eclipse, and ILOG has the distinction of becoming the Eclipse consortium's first Business Rules Vendor, in February 2004. At that time he said of Eclipse, "[it is] fast becoming the foremost Java platform among developers worldwide. ILOG's JRules is widely considered the leading business rule management system for the Java platform, and joining Eclipse will help ensure that business rules are fully integrated in the entire application development lifecycle."
