Organization for the Advancement of Structured Information Standards (OASIS) adalah konsosium global untuk mendorong pengembangan, kovergensi (penyatuan) dan adopsi standarisasi untuk bisnis maya (e-business) dan layanan web (web service).

Standarisasi yang dibahas dan dikembangkan OASIS antara lain: SAML – Security Assertion Markup Language, a standard XML-based framework for the secure exchange of authentication and authorization information. XRI – eXtensible Resource Identifier, a URI-compatible scheme and resolution protocol for abstract identifiers used to identify and share resources across domains and applications. XDI – XRI Data Interchange, a standard for sharing, linking, and synchronizing data (‘dataweb’) across multiple domains and applications using XML documents, eXtensible Resource Identifiers (XRIs), and new method of distributed data control called a link contract. OpenDocument (OASIS Open Document Format for Office Applications) is an open document file format for saving office documents such as spreadsheets, memos, charts, and presentations.
