1 Introduction to SDMX Seminar Eurostat/ECLAC 02 October 2012 August Götzfried Head of Unit, Eurostat B5 Management of statistical data and metadata

2  The exchange of statistical data and metadata is complex, resource intensive and expensive;  In the past, national and international organisations had developed specific approaches and solutions;  Opportunities and challenges related to new technologies such as XML, web services… for machine to machine exchange were coming up. SDMX is the Global answer to this. The background: Why SDMX ?

3 World Bank UNSD SDMX Statistical Data and Metadata EXchange 3 02-Oct-2012

4 The 7 international organizations have joined forces, with the effect of:  Memorandum of Understanding signed March 2007  A rotating chairmanship every two years UN Statistical Commission 02/2008:  SDMX is recognized as “the preferred standard for exchange and sharing of data and metadata in the global statistical community”  Further involving national and international statistical agencies  Importance of capacity building and outreach (webpage, seminars, workshops, training…)  More freely available IT tools……. Why is SDMX so important?

5  SDMX is the crucial instrument for rendering the production method of EU statistics more efficient → new Eurostat vision  After a phase of low investment the burden on national and international statistical organizations is in general reduced.  Data and metadata messages produced by national and international organizations get more comparable and consistent.  National and international statistical processes get more harmonized and offer new ways of data and metadata exchange (such as data hubs)  Web-based dissemination formats are provided that are computer “readable” and easier to update. Benefits of SDMX

6 Costs of SDMX  Development/maintenance of the SDMX standards and guidelines done by the international sponsoring institutions (supported by NSIs)  Standards are public and open source  IT tools are created by sponsoring or other organizations and made freely available  Capacity building by individual sponsoring institutions  Input to the SDMX standards from the user community through open process  No need to radically change the IT and statistical systems: gradual SDMX implementation possible with low investment costs
