1 Copyright © OASIS, 2000 Onwards OASIS Customer Information Quality Technical Committee – Overview Ram Kumar Founding Chairman October 2008

2 Copyright © OASIS, 2000 Onwards OASIS Customer Information Quality Technical Committee (OASIS CIQ TC) The Name “Customer Information Quality” is just the operating name of the Technical Committee. The scope of the TC is much broader than “Customer Information”. This Committee concentrates on developing global and generic industry specifications for “Party Centric Information”. “Customer” is a type of “Party”.

3 Copyright © OASIS, 2000 Onwards Background about CIQ TC n “Officially” founded at XML 2000 Conference in Washington DC, USA n Technical Committee Members from Asia- Pacific, Europe, UK, and USA n Founding Members l Ram Kumar, Mastersoft, Australia (Chairman) l Vincent Buller, AND Data Solutions, The Netherlands l John Bennett, Parlo.com, USA

4 Copyright © OASIS, 2000 Onwards Why was CIQ TC formed? n In a customer driven world, party information is the “key piece of data” used in any business transaction and in particular, global e- business n However, there were no XML industry standards or groups in year 2000 that concentrated on defining standards for consistent representation of party data and for sharing party data between the groups, processes, and applications/systems involved in business transactions associated with a party n Therefore, it was decided to fill this gap through CIQ TC that would focus on developing XML industry specifications for party centric data representation and exchange n A group called Customer Profile Exchange (CPExchange) under IDE Alliance commenced similar work in 2000, but the committee was closed down in

6 CIQ TC Goals/Objectives n Develop global party specifications to represent party data n Application independent specifications n Platform independent specifications n Vendor neutral specifications n Industry neutral specifications n Truly “open” specifications, meaning l free of royalties l free of patents l free of licenses l free of Intellectual Property Rights (IPRs) l freely available for public to download and implement the specifications without any restrictions n Specifications developed in an open process environment n Specifications independent of language, cultural and geographical boundaries n Specifications have the ability and flexibility to represent global party data

7 Copyright © OASIS, 2000 Onwards Out of Scope activities of CIQ TC n Data Privacy n Data Security n Message Structure n Data Transport n Data Routing n Data Formatting n International Name and Address Templates n Data Transformation n Transactional "party information" such as recent purchases, payment history, etc. n Not a quality enhancing process as commonly understood or akin to a certificate of test results against some objective specification

8 Copyright © OASIS, 2000 Onwards CIQ TC Mission Statement Delivering royalty free, open, international, industry and application neutral XML specifications for representing, interoperating, and managing Party (Person/Organisation) Centric Information (Name, Address, Party Profile and Party Relationships) Open Industry Specifications developed by the Public for the Public

9 Copyright © OASIS, 2000 Onwards Why CIQ Standards – An Example n If there are many business systems in a organisation, party data are often captured in each of these systems independently with different formats, contexts, and quality. This leads to serious party data integration issues and therefore, poor visibility of the party and the dealings with the party within the enterprise. As a result, Party oriented initiatives becomes a challenge. n If “standards” are introduced for different domains such as billing, sales, marketing, loans, insurance, etc, often you end up defining party models for each of these standards independently as advocated by these domain models (e.g. IAA, ACORD, xBRL). n CIQ provides a common base specification to represent party data in a consistent way across the organisation, and this can then be extended to support specific business requirements Source: Acxiom Corporation 2001 Loans Deposits Mortgage Brokerage Insurance CIF Line of Business Silo’s Delivery Channels Where’s the Party (customer)? What do I know about the Party (customer)? Credit Cards

10 Copyright © OASIS, 2000 Onwards CIQ TC’s definition of Interoperability n “Get the right data to the right place at the right time in the right format, with the right quality, in the right context, and with the right governance” for processing by processes, applications and users.”

11 Copyright © OASIS, 2000 Onwards CIQ TC’s Data Interoperability Success Formula n Data Interoperability = l Open Data Architecture + l Open Data Integration + l Open Data Standards + l Data Quality + l Data Semantics + l Data Security + l Data Governance

12 Copyright © OASIS, 2000 Onwards What is special about CIQ TC and its Specifications? n The “only standards group in industry” that is dedicated to developing XML specifications for representing Party Centric Data that is truly international and is open, independent of specific application or industry, and is vendor neutral n The “only set of international specifications in industry” that concentrates exclusively on defining Party information specifications without any specific industry or applications or any geographic location or culture in mind

13 Copyright © OASIS, 2000 Onwards CIQ Specifications – Who developed them? n Developed by experts dealing with “international party data” (includes international names and addresses) for use in various applications for over a decade n Developed by experts with XML and XML based interoperability expertise n Developed by experts dealing with data quality, data integration and interoperability of party centric data for many years n Developed by experts who have implemented Information and Data Management Strategies in many organisations

14 Copyright © OASIS, 2000 Onwards CIQ TC Party Information Specifications n Extensible Name and Address Language (xNAL) l Extensible Name Language (xNL) to define a Party’s name (person/company) l Extensible Address Language (xAL) to define a party’s address(es) n Extensible Party Information Language (xPIL) for defining a Party’s unique information (tel, , account, URL, identification cards, etc. in addition to name and address) n Extensible Party Relationships Language (xPRL) to define party relationships namely, person(s) to person(s), person(s) to organisation(s) and organisation(s) to organisation(s) relationships

15 Copyright © OASIS, 2000 Onwards Name and Address: What is the big deal about it? n The most complex “party” data, but the most important data for party identification and for any business dealing with parties (person/organizations) n Can be represented in many ways, but still could mean the same n Very volatile - names and addresses change often n Often cluttered when recorded n Varies from country to country as it is closely associated with the geographical location, culture, race, religion and language l Addresses of 241+ Countries l Represented in 5,000+ languages l With about 130+ Address Formats l With about 36+ Personal Name formats

16 Copyright © OASIS, 2000 Onwards xNAL Goals n “Global” international specifications capable of handling any party names and addresses of the world n Flexibility in design to help any simple application (e.g. Simple user registration using address lines 1,2,3, etc) to complex application (e.g. Name and Address parsing and validation by breaking name and address into atomic elements) to use xNAL to represent party name and address data n Follow and adopt W3C XML industry standards and ensure it is 100% open n Open, global, application, industry and vendor neutral

17 Copyright © OASIS, 2000 Onwards xNAL: Application and Industry Independency n The CIQ specifications will not be specific to any application/domain or industry, say, Postal services, Mailing, CRM, Party Profile, Address Validation, etc n The CIQ Specifications will provide the party data in a standard model that can be used by any application to do further work with the data n Any domain specific standard group, say, Postal services, can use CIQ specifications and build their own standards by extending it to make it specific to its postal business n Any domain specific application can use CIQ specifications and build applications around it that meets its business requirements

18 Copyright © OASIS, 2000 Onwards xNAL: “Global” Specification n The objective is to provide the ability to handle the following: l Addresses of 241+ Countries l Represented in 5,000+ languages l With about 130+ Address Formats l With about 36+ Personal Name formats n and at the same time, should be application independent, industry independent, open and vendor neutral

19 Copyright © OASIS, 2000 Onwards xNAL: Design Approach/Methodology n Designed by people with several years of experience in International Name and Address data management and its applications (Postal services, Party Relationships Management, Parsing, matching, validation, DW, DM, Single Party View, Party Information Systems, etc) n Collected and used valuable inputs from other name and address standard initiatives around the world n Collected and used inputs from real world users, applications and experts of name and address data n Conducted a detailed analysis and modeling of international name and address data n The development of original xNAL (ver.1.0) took about 2+ years

20 Copyright © OASIS, 2000 Onwards xNAL: How different is it from other similar efforts? n Other efforts in defining name and address standards are part of application or industry domain specific models (e.g. Postal services, specific to a country’s names and addresses, Health, Human Resources, etc) n xNAL is the world’s first global, open, vendor neutral and application/domain, and industry independent specification for name and address language n First and the only international standards committee dedicated to developing global XML specifications for name and address n xNAL can be used in any application/domain such as user registration, postal services, name and address parsing, name and address matching, name and address validation, etc. n xNAL is well set to meet the current business challenges of conducting businesses globally

21 Copyright © OASIS, 2000 Onwards An Open Challenge to existing groups that develop Person Name Models in Industry n Can existing party models in industry other than OASIS xNL V3.0 be able to represent the following name of a living person? Full Name : William Street Rajan United States Virginia Indian Name used to address the person : WRUVI First Name, Middle Name, Last Name categorisation of the above name is invalid (they only represent the position of the name in a name string) as each name has a meaning associated with it that has to be preserved. This person’s cultural background does not have the concept for first name, given name, surname, family name, Christian name, last name, etc: n William Street : Name of the street where the person was born n Rajan: The person’s father’s name at birth n United States: Country where the person was born n Virginia: State where the person was born n Indian: Country of origin of the person n OASIS xNL Specification can represent the above name as it provides capability to users to add “semantics” to a name string that helps to preserve the exact meaning of a name.
