With the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) mandating it; stock exchanges around the world using it; and official support from the European Parliament as well as governments of the Netherlands, Australia, Japan and China - the Extensible Business Reporting Language (XBRL) can certainly be considered a global standard for business reporting.

This webcast will introduce you to XBRL and answer your questions. What is XBRL? How is it different than XML? Who is using it today? Learn from Charlie Hoffman, Director, UBmatrix and credited as the “Father of XBRL.”

This presentation is targeted at IT professionals and IT managers interested in learning more about XBRL. As O’Reilly online editor Kurt Cagle recently wrote: “the formal adoption of XBRL as a mandatory requirement is likely to have a number of implications, not least of which being a suddenly high demand for XML skilled people in general, and XBRL people in particular.”
