  • Adjusting EU ICT standardisation policy to the realities of 21 century

    The landscape for ICT (Information and Communication Technology) standardisation has dramatically changed over the last decade. Alongside the traditional standard stetting organisations, specialised and mostly global fora and consortia have become more active and several have emerged as world-leading ICT standards development bodies, such as those responsible for the standards covering the internet and the World Wide Web.

    This development is not reflected in the EU standardisation policy. Fora and consortia standards cannot currently be referenced, even if they could be of benefit in helping to achieve public policy goals.

  • Australia: You Can Lead a Government to XML

    Extensible Markup Language was once heralded as the lingua franca of e-government. More than six years down the road, however, it is still more of a regional dialect

As the government body responsible for supervision of Australia's financial services and insurance industries, APRA believed the standard's enablement of consistent financial reporting structures would make it extremely popular among the 10,000 institutions required to report regularly to APRA.
