XML is the Extensible Markup Language.

It is designed to improve the functionality of the Web by providing more flexible and adaptable information identification.

XML has been designed for ease of implementation, and for interoperability with both
SGML and HTML. XML is not just for Web pages: it can be used to store any kind of structured information, and to enclose or encapsulate information in order to pass it between different computing systems which would otherwise be unable to communicate.

The potential of XML to support multi-formatted data and improve data exchange has been widely recognized by a number of industries, scientific disciplines, government agencies and the IT industry.

Exchange of data. Data is being exchanged between users, managers and researchers in increasingly larger volumes. Most of this exchange is electronic. A major strength and source of potential of XML is that it facilitates the exchange of data between different applications and operating systems. One of XML's strongest points are its ability to do data interchange. Because different organizations (or even different parts of the same organization) rarely standardize on a single set of tools, it takes a significant amount of work for two groups to communicate.

XML makes it easy to send structured data across the web so that nothing gets lost in translation. XML is potentially the answer for ships ballast water data exchange, as long as all sides agree on the markup to use.
