The idea that SD= MX and D= DI are complementary rather than competing standards dates back to at l= east 2007. Existing resources are availab= le that discuss - at a fairly high level - the relationship between the= two standards.
These wiki pages contain additional information related to an informal d= ialogue process that was initiated in December 2010.
The dialogue engages the two standards bodies (eg representatives of the= SDMX Secretariat and the DDI Alliance) as well as other stakeholders who h= ave an interest in the two standards and how they can work together - both = currently and in the future.
Following the 5th session, the dialogue was reorganised into a "Cor= e Group", three task teams, and a wider mailing list.
The dialogue will continue through teleconferences, and on the margins o= f other events
At the initial discussion in December 2010
Three potential objectives for a collaboration were identified:=
These objectives remain open for review.
A number of practitioners, who have identified themselves as having an i= nterest in both standards and how they work together, are already participa= ting in the dialogue process. The dialogue process aims to be inclusive so = participation by other agencies and individuals with similar interests is g= reatly encouraged.
An informal mailing list of interest parties has been established. If yo= u would like to register your interest, and be added to this list, please c= ontact Steven Vale (Steven.Vale@unece.org) at the UNECE Statistical Division.
Please also contact Steven if you have comments or questions in regard t= o any of the documentation made available through these pages.
