IT Roundtable: Update on the Uniform Data Standard

SBCA’s IT Committee has spent the past few months developing a uniform data standard that will enable information to be easily understood by any piece of equipment or software developed for the industry. In the initial phase of this initiative, the group determined what information should be included in that standardized file. Additionally, the group has also developed processes for receiving and implementing new format requests. This webinar will provide an update on the development of this standard and an opportunity to ask questions and provide input as the project moves forward.
