How Standards Bolster Innovation

A Quick Look into the Past

 

Towards the end of the 19th century, electrical engineering became one of the core engines of the second industrial revolution. As Nicholas Carr put it, in "The Big Switch," manufacturing energy provided factories "with a decisive advantage over other manufacturers. The company was able to expand the yield and efficiency of its factory. [...] Like other factories of the time, they were as much in the business of manufacturing energy as manufacturing goods". This of course, quickly changed, as power plants started to rise and provide energy at a low-cost to everyone.

An aspect that is often overlooked in that story is that none of this could have happened without the emergence of standards.

App Stores, Standards, and the Power of Developers

Posted by HR Open Standards on May 30, 2012 1:37:08 PM

Written by: Romuald Restout

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? There is an App store for that. Want to manage your to-do list? There is an App store for that. Want to exchange files with your colleagues or family? There is a .... You get the idea.

App stores are convenient; they give you the ability to access all apps in the same virtual place, to browse apps for a particular category or function and to even discover needs that you didn't even know you had. So it's no surprise that App stores have become a predominant -if not the main- way for consumers to acquire (whether free or paying) software or media.It's no surprise either that App stores are flourishing or that each social platform is creating their own. Latest to join the party is no other than Facebook.

Standards Working Together: An e-Learning Perspective

Posted by HR Open Standards on May 22, 2012 1:42:36 PM

Written by: Steve Lay

I have been involved with the technical standards community for many years and was first introduced to HR-XML over ten years ago. I was working on standards for learning systems (with a particular interest in assessment) and the various consortia representing different industry sectors were just beginning to colaborate to prevent duplication of effort. I later worked, briefly, as the liaison between some of the working groups of the IMS Global Learning Consoritium and HR-XML.

SETU: HR-XML in Nederland

Posted by HR Open Standards on May 12, 2012 1:51:33 PM

Sinds 2007 is de SETU in Nederland actief in het op maat maken van de internationale HR-XML standaarden voor gebruik in de Nederlandse branche voor flexibele arbeid. In de bijna vijf jaar is er veel werk verzet: zo is er gestart met de ontwikkeling van standaarden om de aanvraag, de offerte, de plaatsing, het urenbriefje en de factuur digitaal uit te kunnen wisselen. Deze standaarden beschrijven de informatie die uitgewisseld wordt, voor de technische uitwisseling van de informatie wordt gebruik gemaakt van de HR-XML 2.5 standaarden.

Written by: Jasper Roes

Since the start of SETU in 2007, SETU has been active in customizing the international HR-XML standard for use in the flexible staffing industry in the Netherlands. A lot of work has been done in the nearly five years that the SETU exists. Standards were developed to exchange requests for quotes, offers, assignments, timecards, and invoices. These SETU standards define the information that is exchanged, while the technical format for the exchange is the HR-XML 2.5 standards.

Interoperability between Europass CV and HR-XML

Posted by HR Open Standards on Apr 22, 2012 1:53:23 PM

Prior to the HR-XML 3.0 Candidate schema, the Cedefop (the European Centre for the Development of Vocational Training) developed its own internal XML schema to store and edit Europass CV using their website CV editor. Starting 2008, they have published free opensource tools such as XML transformation sheet to help cross interoperability with the HR-XML candidate specifications (v2.5 as well as v3.x) based on the Europass CV HR-XML Application Profile document.
