Joined by more than 80 participants from 45 industry leading companies such as Google and Adobe, the W3C issued a draft specification in July and plans to publish the final specification later this year. The specification will rally the industry around a single data model for data collection, resulting in accelerated on-boarding of new, relevant services, reduced IT burden in managing existing services and superior site performance.
