Filed under: — By Aviran Mordo @ 11:38 am

IBM and Sun Microsystems will host a private meeting Friday to rally industry support for OpenDocument, a specification for standardizing documents that proponents hope will spur adoption of software that competes with the Microsoft Office productivity suite.

The meeting, which is scheduled to take place at the IBM Learning Center in Armonk, New York, is aimed at discussing with other technology companies ways to advance the adoption of OpenDocument, said Todd Martin, an IBM spokesperson, on Wednesday.

“The meeting is for those industry partners who are interested in implementing and advancing the OpenDocument specification,” Martin said.
