The HR Open Standards Payroll workgroup has been very active in developing standards for a variety of business needs. Our original scope was to focus on transactions between the HRIS as the System of Record and the Payroll System. We've recently decided to expand that focus to handle Distributed System of Record. Many organizations exchange data with internal or 3rd party systems and need to provision/sync those systems throughout the employment life cycle. The following diagram shows one scenario we are considering, where each system is its own System of Record.

Want to get the latest Florence and the Machine album or the latest "Game of Thrones" episode? There is an App store for that. Want to manage your pictures across all your devices?

Latest to join the party is no other than Facebook.

There is a tremendous new website resource available to all called "Standards Boost Business.”
This website is hosted by the American National Standards Institute and does an excellent job of describing how standards boost business by streamlining, speeding up, and saving money for organizations.
The website describes a concept called Strategic Standardization. The website goes on to tell us that according to the U.S. Department of Commerce, standards and conformity assessment impact more than 80% of global commodity trade. From design and manufacturing to distribution and marketing, all aspects of your industry’s products and services are affected at some point by standardization.
