XML (Extensible Markup Language)
Technical Definition – A flexible standard used both to define/describe data formats and to represent actual structured data in text that is human-readable. It is often used to exchange information between distinct systems over the internet.
Layman’s Definition – A text format used to represent both the content and the structure of information. Different applications and computer systems often communicate with other using XML data.
How we use it – XML is one of many data standards that applications and services may use to communicate with one another. alligatortek solutions send and receive XML and JSON to/from your existing systems and those of your vendors (Salesforce, Quickbooks, Dynamics, and many more) to get your systems talking to one another and to allow workflows that give you direct access to your data.
