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.
|I'm John Kleeman, Chairman of Questionmark, the assessment management systems company. Here is why open specifications and standards like HR-XML save effort when developing software.
Suppose you are responsible for application A, and your customer needs it to integrate with application B. How do you do this?
One option is to build a proprietary interface, where you write code which connects A to B directly.

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.

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.
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.

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.
