1 OASIS Customer Information Quality Technical Committee – Overview Ram Kumar Founding Chairman Ram Kumar Founding Chairman March 2008

2 OASIS Customer Information Quality Technical Committee (OASIS CIQ TC) Delivering royalty free, open, international, industry and application neutral XML specifications for representing, interoperating and managing PARTY (person/organisation) INFORMATION Industry Specifications developed by the Public for the Public

3 Background about CIQ TC n “Officially” founded in late 2000 at XML 2000 Conference in Washington DC n Work on CIQ specifications started “informally” in early 2000 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,, USA

4 Why was CIQ TC formed? n In 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 to define and share party information between the groups involved in business transactions n Therefore, it was decided to develop XML industry specifications for party centric data representation and exchange

5 Applications using Party related data (a sample)

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 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 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 "customer/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 CIQ TC Goals/Objectives

9 CIQ TC’s definition of Interoperability n “Getting the right data to the right place at the right time in the right format and in the right context”

10 CIQ TC’s Data Interoperability Success Formula n Data Interoperability = l Open Data Architecture + l Data Integration + l Data Quality + l Open Data Standards + l Data Semantics + l Data Governance

11 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, e-mail, 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

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

13 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

14 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

15 xNAL Goals n Application/Domain Independent n Truly “Global” international specifications 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 and vendor neutral

16 xNAL: Application Independency n The CIQ specifications will not be specific to any application/domain, say, Postal services, Mailing, CRM, Party Profile, Address Validation, etc n The CIQ Specifications will provide the party data in a standard format 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

17 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, open and vendor neutral

18 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, CRM, Parsing, matching, validation, DW, DM, Single Customer View, CIS, 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 (e.g. Graham Rhind of Global Address Database) 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 and is still evolving

19 xNAL: How different is it from other similar efforts? n Other efforts in defining name and address standards are application or domain specific (e.g. Postal services, specific to a country’s names and addresses, Health, Human Resources, etc) n xNAL is the world’s first truly global, open, vendor neutral and application/domain 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 (thanks to e-business)

20 Evolution of xNAL Specifications
