Burton Group says XML standards consolidating- ADTmag.com "One analyst covering XML used to constantly add new standards to a single PowerPoint slide she used in presentations until the proliferation of standards, mostly beginning in X and often making cute acronyms, overwhelmed the slide and turned it into a black mass.
The good news, according to Peter O'Kelly, an analyst with the Burton Group, is that the flavor-of-the-month time for XML standards may be coming to a merciful end.
'XML is now in the midst of a transformational phase,' he writes in a recently released report, 'XML Modeling and Mapping: Tumultuous Transformation in the Grand Schema of Things,' which Burton Group supplied to XDT. In O'Kelly's opinion, 'the market is rapidly consolidating around a small but significant set of XML standards and artifact types (documents, schemas, styles, and transformations).'"
