PPDM is showing how the Xtensible Markup Language (XML) can be used to model real-world E&P ‘objects’ such as ‘business associates.’

PPDM has put the results of its work on XML data modeling on its web site for review by members and non-members. Samples show how XML is used to describe a ‘business associate’ (a contractor or partner) and how the technology can be used to move data between different databases and applications.

Business Associate

The Business Associate Schema defines the content and structure of the Business Associate transaction in XML. Three support schemas contain common, reusable element definitions. Support schemas are used to help validate the contents of an XML document. Check out the PPDM XML work at www.ppdm.org.
