Evolution and Future Trends Where did we come from? Where are we now? What are the possible paths forward? What are the trends indicating a possible path?
The Story of Our New Language Personalities, cultures, and politics combine to create a common, global language for business http://www.aicpa.org/InterestAreas/ FRC/AccountingFinancialReporting/X BRL/DownloadableDocuments/XBRL_ 09_web_final.pdf
Where did we come from? X FR ML, FR TA, FR IS Spec 1.0, 2.0, 2.0a, 2.1, errata Dimensions, Inline
Original Plans Looked Deeper From Highlights of Initial XFRML Steering Committee, 10/14/99 [XFRML] should have its roots in the "Audit Supply Chain." XFRML as technical standard for seamless process of exchange across all audit processes. Our opportunity is to address things internationally at the level below the financial reporting level since there is more commonality at that level. This is still the place of XBRLs Global Ledger Taxonomy Framework – the detailed information found in ERP systems.

What are the trends indicating a possible path? Development based on immediate user requirements, not BRSC scope Independence of syntax/formal modelling effort What is XBRL if not the XBRL Specification? XBRL is what we say it is Inmates running the asylum
