Vitria, a global software designer based in Sunnyvale, CA, has introduced a new online language standard for supply chain systems called Value Chain Markup Language (VCML). Vitria said VCML addresses unique and incompatible data formats for describing standard collaborative business documents such as purchase orders and invoices.

VCML standardizes business documents in an XML format while retaining the structure and rich business terms embedded within those documents. VCML is an XML standard that is derived from the globally agreed-upon EDI vocabularies that are currently used to conduct trillions of dollars of business transactions by companies worldwide, Vitria said.

Global organizations can now deploy VCML’s vocabulary-based approach to leverage and extend existing business standards and adapt easily to updated and new standards. For example, Transentric, a wholly owned subsidiary of Union Pacific, has leveraged the VCML vocabulary data formats to produce TranXML, enabling approximately 1.5 million secure electronic messages a day for customers in a wide variety of industries.
