1 - Accept Meeting Minutes From 12/6-7


- As posted at [1]


2 - SPML Working with HR-XML


- Introduction to HR-XML integration

- Discuss possible activities

- Outline integration calendar

- Outline PR activities


      - Boutique companies like background companies, and other smaller companies

      - Basis of Provisioning data

      - Ultimate software (Managed service provider of HRMS service for mid-tier) is interested in SPML for providing information in a standard way


      - Typical scenario:  Applicant tracking system


      - Classic issue of HRMS:

            1) Manager capabilities via manager self-service; Provisioning managers

            2) Employee self-service


- Initial interest within HRXML came from:

      o Application Tracking


- Would HRXML users use Provisioning solutions for onboarding/offbouarding?

      o Not sure if members would be able to move with that but sounds interesting.

      o Project is underway that has employee-related metadata might be interesting around the orchestration of this     within a provisioning scenario

      o Would be good to explore

      o Are we suggesting the SPML-based IDM products are able to profile HR-XML products or our members of HR-XML   to abide by SPML?

      o Draft needs to be developed by both parties

      o Possibility:  Create a separate SPML working group around HR-XML to talk about what the value proposition, what integration would look like

      o Possibility:  Could do it in a general forum

      o Any document for SPML information would be helpful for HR-XML group

      o Next discussion:  Tuesday, 1st of February, 9:00 a.m. CT
