Hello,
My name is Heather Kreger and I will be representing  IBM in this working
group.

I have been working on the fringes of Web services since their inception.
About a year ago I assumed a more central role as the lead architect for
web services in Emerging Technologies. I have been responsible for
documenting IBMs view of the Web Services Architecture and immediate
directions and helping guide future directions. We published his
architecture at http://www.ibm.com/webservices and have presented it at
numerous conferences. Lately I have been working on Web Services and its
realization in J2EE in Sun's JCP process under JSR109. This work has given
me a broad understanding of industry perceptions about Web services and the
requirements that must be met in order for it to fulfill its role in
business.

Before my life in Web services, I was working in the art of enterprise
management for applications and networks. I was the chair of the DMTF's CIM
Applications Management Work Group and a contributor to Sun's Java
Management Extensions.

I do not have personal knowledge of any IPR  claims held by IBM regarding
the Web Services Architecture.
