Do these two XML files have the same data format and structure?
ExportHow Does XML Facilitate Interoperability?
No significant reduction in the complexities of data sharing.
Dissimilar Data Formats
Mission Statement Summary
“The Data Standards Workgroup will develop specific standards for ensuring the quality and consistency of resource databases maintained by information and referral (I&R) services, specifically to facilitate importing, exporting and merging of data….”
The AIRS XML Schema specifies these standards. Vendor implementation of this schema will facilitate exchange of data and application interoperability.
A Screenshot of the AIRS XML Schema does not exist?
Our communities benefit from improved service.

Choose one application for region-wide or state-wide use.
Costs associated with buying, implementing, and learning a new technology.
Removes consumer choice. Agencies cannot choose the application that best meets their needs.
Eliminates benefits of competition.
