JustSystems Continues to Drive XBRL Standard Forward
Diane Mueller Appointed to Board of Directors of XBRL International; Dave Raggett Appointed to the XBRL Technical Standards Board
NEW YORK and VANCOUVER — May 6, 2009 —
JustSystems, the largest independent software vendor in Japan and a worldwide leader in XML and information management technologies, today announced that Diane Mueller, vice president, XBRL development for JustSystems, has been appointed to the Board of Directors (BOD) of XBRL International, Inc. (XII). In addition, the company announced that Dave Raggett, JustSystems-sponsored W3C Fellow, has been appointed to the XBRL International Standards Board (XSB).
In related news, JustSystems also announced the launch of its Beta program for xfy XBRL Report, the first and only application that enables users to view, explore and report on multi-dimensional XBRL data (see press release titled, “JustSystems Launches Beta Program for xfy XBRL Report”).
Mueller and Raggett have been actively involved in the development efforts of the XBRL standard for several years, and their new appointments validate their continued commitment to driving the standard forward. In Mueller’s BOD role, she will focus heavily on global XBRL adoption and implementation strategies. As part of the XBRL Standards Board, Raggett will spend time exploring the relationship between XBRL and the semantic web.
“XBRL has the potential to transform business, dramatically simplifying filing and reporting — improving transparency and information access in ways never before imaginable,” said Muller. “By working closely with organizations like XII, we look forward to advising regulators, accounting firms and corporations as to what they must do to adapt to the new world of business reporting.”
Along with XBRL International and many other organizations worldwide, JustSystems has been aggressively supporting the development of the XBRL standard and integrating the interactive data format into its xfy platform. JustSystems’ software solutions work along with XBRL to enable a richer way of working with and utilizing information, leveraging their technology around information search and retrieval, semantics, document management, and data integration.
