The RSC is also 170 years old -- so it's no surprise the assets it's accumulated since the 1840s would be unwieldy to manage, publish, and otherwise make more broadly available. The recent explosive growth of digital assets has only exacerbated the problem.</p> Big Data Data Management Big Data NoSQL XML Data Management Thu, 17 Jan 2013 11:00:00 +0000 Andrew Lampitt 211020 at http://podcasts.infoworld.com XML workflow spec finalized http://podcasts.infoworld.com/d/developer-world/xml-workflow-spec-finalized-304?source=rss_xml <p>The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) will announce on Tuesday a specification to organize and share XML workflows.</p> <p>Called "XProc: An XML Pipeline Language," the specification provides a standard framework for composing XML processes, streamlining the automation, sequencing and management of complex computations involving XML. It leverages existing technologies widely adopted in enterprises, W3C said.</p> Application Development Data Management Application Development XML Tue, 11 May 2010 15:00:00 +0000 Paul Krill 123304 at http://podcasts.infoworld.com Top five business technologies of the '00s http://podcasts.infoworld.com/t/hardware/top-five-business-technologies-00s-305?source=rss_xml <p>Not to put too fine a point on it, but as decades go, the '00s sucked.
