Apple Presents the Schools Interoperability Framework Utilizing XML
Javier Perez Sanchez, Apple Developer Relations
Apple Computer, Inc.
Tuesday, November 14, 2000, 3:30-5:30 p.m.
Anacapa Room
XML (Extensible Markup Language) is clearly emerging as the major foundation of both the SIF (School Interoperability Format) and a host of powerful robust, web-based data interchange applications from a variety of developers. This presentation will provide CEDPA conference participants with an introductory overview of both topics in order to better understand their impact on current deployment decisions.
The Schools Interoperability Framework (SIF) is a new technical blueprint for the seamless integration of multivendor software applications in K-12 school districts. As K-12 schools and districts increase their use of more complex software tools, administrators have been searching for true interoperable and secure ways to share information. Borne out of these needs, the Schools Interoperability Framework (SIF) addresses this problem by creating simple specifications for the seamless integration of software applications. To help fulfill those needs and provide solutions for K-12, Apple has been decisively involved in the development of this rapidly accepted and evolving standard.
