Three potential objectives for a collaboration were identified:

  1. To avoid duplication of effort by the two standards, and thus avoid confusion about which standards should be used for specific types of applications
  2. To provide reassurance to the user communities of both DDI and SDMX that the end-to-end statistical process can be managed, and that the standards bodies are both considering the needs of users in this area
  3. To provide specific technical guidance about the use cases and implementation of the standards for specific purposes

    It was mentioned that these objectives are not only technical ones - users should be considered at both the business level and the technical level.
