Maximizing return from a comprehensive technology like XML requires multiple strategies and tools. The further upstream that XML can be created, the greater the leverage and the lower the cost. We look at platforms and tools that allow subject matter experts to create in XML and how to manage the hand-off to all subsequent steps in an XML environment.
