The use of NIEM results in machine-readable information exchanges. The NIEM model is defined using W3C XML Schema—which is technology and platform independent. You can also represent NIEM in Unified Modeling Language (UML) with tooling that implements the NIEM-UML profile, and automatically produces NIEM-conformant schema. To ensure NIEM is growing its technical architecture and capabilities in alignment with community needs—future targets for representation may include JSON, RDF, and others.
