From the Author
William Shakespeare could not have known of computers or that his plays would end up encoded in XML. Yet the Gutenberg movable press was little more than a century old when he wrote his first plays in the late 16th century and only a few decades before the father of double entry bookkeeping, Luca Pacioli, published his masterpiece Summa de Arithmetica, Geometria, Proportioni et Proportionalita in Venice in 1494. The Gutenberg press with its movable type, had revolutionized the production and distribution of knowledge. From illustrated manuscripts handwritten by monks, read and owned by only a tiny proportion of the population, society adopted printed books with gusto. Technology constantly affects the production, distribution and consumption of knowledge broadly and business reports more specifically. From the Gutenberg press to the telegraph to the Internet, we have seen how changes in technology bring about rapid movement in the production and use of knowledge. The eXtensible Business Reporting Language (XBRL) is an important foundation for the high quality exchange of business and other reports on the Internet. XBRL provides the opportunity to make significant changes in the distribution and use of information in a variety of information value chains.
From the Back Cover
Interactive data supports organizations to communicate effectively with their stakeholders and partners on the Internet and the World Wide Web. XBRL (eXtensible Business Reporting Language) is a key enabling technology for interactive data. XBRL links organizations and knowledge consumers in a variety of information value chains. XBRL is now in use in many countries and important settings. This book provides, for the first time, an in-depth analysis of XBRL. Thorough and up-to-date, this book explains the most popular constructs in XML, on which XBRL builds, and XBRL. The book provides business and policy makers, technologists and information engineers with an essential toolkit to understand the complete implementation of XBRL.
The book begins with an overview of the business case for interactive data and XBRL. There is an introduction to XML and XBRL and the design and construction of XBRL taxonomies including extensions and multi-dimensional XBRL implementations. It provides a detailed analysis of the interaction of instance documents and taxonomies. The book also provides a synopsis of the most current XBRL technologies.
