Overview: The HR-XML Consortium develops and promotes a standard suite of XML specifications for e-business and the automation of human resources-related data exchanges. Human resources-related e-business, or any inter-company exchange of HR data, requires an agreement among participants about how the transaction or data exchange will be accomplished. The mission of the HR-XML Consortium is to reduce the need of a company to negotiate and agree upon data interchange mechanisms on an ad-hoc basis by developing and publishing open data exchange standards based on Extensible Markup Language ("XML"). The HR-XML Consortium has a library of numerous interdependent "XML schemas." XML schemas define the data elements for particular HR transactions, as well as options and constraints governing the use of those elements. The HR-XML Consortium has produced schemas covering major processes, as well as component schemas, used across multiple business processes.
