XML is fast becoming the lingua franca of the Internet as it is used to specify, encode and convey an ever growing amount of information. Tagged information architectures, of course, are not entirely new. In fact, in the late 1970s, IBM recognized their enormous potential, and the IBM research and development communities helped develop XML's predecessors, GML and SGML. Today, with XML and related technologies, IBM continues to provide strong leadership in innovation and standards activities, and it is helping catalyze XML's success through strong participation in open-source communities. IBM sees the growing value of XML as a fulcrum for major initiatives, such as service-oriented architectures (SOAs) and Information On Demand.
