SyncML History

In order to properly understand the significance of the SyncML Initiative, perhaps a brief history is in order. The SyncML Initiative was publicly announced in February 2000. The purpose was to allow for the creation of an open standard for data synchronization. SyncML Data Synchronization 1.0 was published in December 2000. This was seen as a very good first effort, with a few important features left for later.

Another important area not yet addressed was device management. A group was formed within SyncML in May 2001. The group was formed from companies that were not only Sponsors of SyncML, but also of a new rank, Promoters. Promoters were companies that were not on the Board of SyncML, but wanted to work on the specifications. Previously, only Sponsor companies were allowed to work on the specifications.
