JustSystems, an independent software vendor in Japan and a worldwide provider of XML and information management technologies, and EDGAR Online, Inc., a provider of interactive business and financial data on global companies to financial, corporate, and advisory professionals, announced a strategic alliance to deliver XBRL (eXtensible Business Reporting Language) to the desktop so that stakeholders can view, analyze, and work with XBRL data. Through the new partnership, JustSystems will deliver certain of EDGAR Online’s XBRL tagged data to their subscribers through the xfy XBRL viewer platform.
 
In addition, JustSystems and Allocation Solutions, a developer of innovative eXtensible Business Reporting Language (XBRL) software systems, announced that the companies have enabled the State of Oregon Controller’s Division to prepare regulatory filings using the XBRL standard. The project was the brainchild of the AGA (Association of Government Accountants), a proponent of the XBRL initiative. AGA commissioned a research project to study the benefits of developing and using the XBRL taxonomy to tag data and produce Comprehensive Annual Financial Reports (CAFR). JustSystems’ xfy XBRL viewer and the Allocation Solutions DataXchanger software solutions allow the State of Oregon Controller’s Office to leverage XBRL. The DataXchanger software delivers, maps, and tags the XBRL data creating the report while the JustSystems viewer fills the rendering gap — producing Oregon CAFR reports in the desired presentation and format.
