Intended Audience

The intended audience of this How To guide is someone who is considering implementing ISO 15926 at an organization and wishes to know roughly what is involved before committing funds. This guide does not attempt to be a step-by-step, screen shot-by-screen shot "Software Installtion" document because the manner in which an organization implements ISO 15926 is to a very large degree, dependent on what needs to be accomplished.

Is ISO 15926 for you?

  • First of all, ISO 15926 is implemented in software. Therefore, if your organization writes software you may have a need for ISO 15926.
  • Second, the purpose of ISO 15926 is to make the exchange information easy. Therefore, if the software your organization writes communicates with other software, either internal applications, or external applications written by others, your organization may be able to benefit from ISO 15926.
  • Third, while ISO 15926 can bring value in a custom, one-off situation, where it really shines is in re-use. Therefore, if your organization has many software applictions that have to communicate with each other, or if your business partners happen to be among the many organizations that are implementing ISO 15926 themselves, ISO 15916 is definitly for you.
