The STRING project is generally open to everyone interested in participating the process of developing a new standard for bookings in the travel industry. Therefore this wiki and its information are open to the public.
The project has several working and decision making levels. The highest institution within this project is the Steering Committee. It consists of the current board members of the users of the DRV data standard and is led by the DRV. Members of the Steering Committee are representatives from the following companies:
- DER Touristik
- Thomas Cook
The project is led by the DRV and MC Management Consulting. Amadeus, Bewotec and traffics have designated further employees to support this project in order to develop the required XSD-schemes. This project team strongly cooperates with an expert group. Experts are members of the tour operators represented in the Steering Committee.
Nevertheless the project team shares its information with the public and would highly appreciate an industry-wide discussion of the projects intermediate and final results on this platform. Therefore all relevant project information published within this wiki are fully accessable to the public, everyone interested can inform him- or herself about the current status of development.
If you would like to actively accompany the project development and support the project team by discussing published results, pls send a short application request including your name, company, working position and eMail-address to email@example.com. You will then get access data. Please keep in mind: access will only be provided to individuals, not to overall companies. If needed you can of course have several accounts per company. Please consider: all comments published on this platform will always show the author and authors are fully responsible for the content published with their account. Therefore please handle your access data very carefully. In case of misuse of access the project team has the right to eliminate users from this platform (e.g. use of foul language).
Participation can take place on three different levels: Level 1: participation via the project wiki, e.g. bei completing questionnaires within the project and by discussing results within the wiki Level 2: membership within the expert group. This requires at least one dedicated representative of either a tour operator or its it provider, meetings are held every two months approximately. Level 3: prototyping partner, implementing one or numerous releases within the current project to test the functionality provided. This role can be covered by other representatives of a tour operator or its it provider than the expert group members.
