Titan projects : « the standards we lived with »

This section describes a number of standards or industrial standards that have marked the history of the organization and that information systems should adopt to exchange data given the lack of expressivity of the tools, or the difficulty of mobilize "differentiating factors" for the targeted business.

Back to concepts, gain height leads to base interoperability regardless of the formats used locally or standard (as is done in MPEG-21, for example). The reason for going back to the concept provides a means for emancipation from the constraints of choice and representation formalisms and structure. If the representation format has been changed, taking up semantics leads to locally change (no change propagation). 

This analysis primarily concerns ISO (for OAIS - Open Archival Information System and MPEG 21 Part 19 and 20), the IFLA(for FRBR) and the LOC (Library of Congress for PREMIS), the EBU, which is very active in the audiovisual field (EBUCore and CCDM Class Conceptual Data Model), the AMWA/ EBU collaboration in FIMS (Framework for Interoperable Media Services) and finally the Federations International Organizations, Associations and Library Institutions that have been working on preservation for decades (IFLA-CIDOC): FRSAD (Functional Requirements for Subject Authority Data) and CIDOC-CRM.

It is possible to represent the semantic in a standardized way, with a set of standards that have an extremely limited number of characters (in this case the list of ASCII characters and nothing more), some meta-separator symbols and that's it! The normalization of the representation is completely finished and has been well designed. However, there is still no complete normalization of exploitation of semantics. There are still things to normalize, but it is not essential for the representation of information to be transmitted (this is simply to produce semantic representations).

Last point: the potential benefit and increasing ergonomics of the representation of information software in xD technologies.
