Technical Committee (OASIS CIQ TC)

Delivering royalty free, open,
international, industry and application
neutral XML specifications for
representing, interoperating and
managing PARTY (person/organisation)

  Industry Specifications developed by the Public for the Public
Background about CIQ TC
   “Officially” founded in late 2000 at XML 2000
    Conference in Washington DC
   Work on CIQ specifications started
    “informally” in early 2000
   Technical Committee Members from Asia-
    Pacific, Europe, UK, and USA
   Founding Members

Why was CIQ TC formed?
   In customer driven world, party information is
    the “key piece of data” used in any business
    transaction and in particular, global e-
   However, there were no XML industry
    standards to define and share party
    information between the groups involved in
    business transactions
   Therefore, it was decided to develop XML
    industry specifications for party centric data
    representation and exchange

    understood or akin to a certificate of test results
    against some objective specification
CIQ TC Goals/Objectives
CIQ TC’s definition of
   “Getting the right data to the right place
    at the right time in the right format and
    in the right context”
CIQ TC’s Data Interoperability
Success Formula
   Data Interoperability =

CIQ TC Party Information Specifications
    Extensible Name and Address Language (xNAL)
       Extensible Name Language (xNL) to define a

        Party’s name (person/company)
       Extensible Address Language (xAL) to define a

        party’s address(es)
    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)
    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
What is special about CIQ TC and its
    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
    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
CIQ Specifications – Who
developed them?
   Developed by experts dealing with “international
    party data” (includes international names and
    addresses) for use in various applications for
    over a decade
   Developed by experts with XML and XML based
    interoperability expertise
   Developed by experts dealing with data quality,
    data integration and interoperability of party
    centric data for many years
Name and Address: What is the big
deal about it?
   The most complex “party” data, but the most important data
    for party identification and for any business dealing with
    parties (person/organizations)
   Can be represented in many ways, but still could mean the
   Very volatile - names and addresses change often
   Often cluttered when recorded
   Varies from country to country as it is closely associated
    with the geographical location, culture, race, religion and
       Addresses of 241+ Countries
       Represented in 5,000+ languages
       With about 130+ Address Formats
       With about 36+ Personal Name formats
xNAL Goals
   Application/Domain Independent
   Truly “Global” international specifications
   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
   Follow and adopt W3C XML industry
    standards and ensure it is 100% open
   Open and vendor neutral
xNAL: Application Independency
    The CIQ specifications will not be specific to any
     application/domain, say, Postal services, Mailing,
     CRM, Party Profile, Address Validation, etc
    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
    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
    Any domain specific application can use CIQ
     specifications and build applications around it that
     meets its business requirements
xNAL: “Global” Specification
    The objective is to provide the
     ability to handle the following:
        Addresses of 241+ Countries
        Represented in 5,000+ languages
        With about 130+ Address Formats
        With about 36+ Personal Name formats
    and at the same time, should be
     application independent, open and
     vendor neutral
xNAL: Design Approach/Methodology
    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)
    Collected and used valuable inputs from other name and
     address standard initiatives around the world
    Collected and used inputs from real world users, applications
     and experts (e.g. Graham Rhind of Global Address Database)
     of name and address data
    Conducted a detailed analysis and modeling of international
     name and address data
    The development of original xNAL (ver.1.0) took about 2+
     years and is still evolving
xNAL: How different is it from other
similar efforts?
    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,
    xNAL is the world’s first truly global, open, vendor neutral and
     application/domain independent specification for name and
     address language
    First and the only international standards committee
     dedicated to developing global XML specifications for name
     and address
    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,
    xNAL is well set to meet the current business challenges of
     conducting businesses globally (thanks to e-business)

                                   EVOLUTION OF OASIS xCRL/xPRL SPECIFICATION SINCE 1999
xPRL Data Model
Status of CIQ Specifications
   V3.0 of Name (xNL)
   V3.0 of Address (xAL)
   V3.0 of Name and Address (xNAL)
   V3.0 of Party Information (xPIL)
   V3.0 of Party Relationships (xPRL)
Open Industry Specifications used
by CIQ Specifications V3.0
    xLink from W3C (Jointly implemented with
     xBRL Group to enable interoperability between
     CIQ and xBRL)
    GeoRSS/GML Profile from OGC
    Schematron from ISO
    Code List Representation from OASIS
    XML Schema from W3C
    xPath from W3C
    XSL from W3C
Key Features of CIQ V3.0
   Allows users to define semantics to the data that reflect their business
   Allows users to apply constraint on CIQ XML Schemas (e.g. only using
    the elements they want to meet their business requirements) without
    changing the CIQ XML Schemas
   Allows users to add/delete/change code list values without changing
    the CIQ XML Schemas
   Can perform one pass validation (structure and code list value
    validation) of CIQ XML document instances against the CIQ XML
    Schemas if the code lists are defined as part of CIQ XML Schemas
   Can perform two pass validation (pass 1 – structure validation and
    pass 2 – code list value validation and business rules validation) of CIQ
    XML document instances against the CIQ XML Schemas by defining
    code lists outside of the CIQ XML Schemas
   More international address examples represented in CIQ
   Option to use xLink from W3C or key reference to link parties
   Option to use GeoRSS from OGC to represent address locations
