Techopedia explains Organization For The Advancement Of Structured Information Standards (OASIS)

OASIS builds open standards geared toward reducing global costs and fostering innovation. The organization has developed open standards in multiple key technology domains, including security, cloud computing, content technology, Web services and e-government. Each standard is built with the help of OASIS members and only published if approved by a majority.

Notable OASIS standards include SGML, WS-Security, Open Document Format, Electronic Business using eXtensible Markup Language (ebXML) and Darwin Information Typing Architecture (DITA).

OASIS works with other standardization bodies, including the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), American National Standards Institute (ANSI) and International Telecommunication Union (ITU) to ensure their standards are easily adopted and integrated with most technologies.
