A group of individuals that often do not see the light of day, will be descending on the NADA headquarters June 2nd and 3rd. These individuals are responsible for the care of your networks, the creation of your applications, the lively hood of your company. They live primarily off of stale pizza, and old pop cans. They are your technical staff and developers!!!
The STAR June Technical Session is fast approaching, and it’s another benefit for STAR members. It’s free for STAR members and invited guests to attend. It is an opportunity for your technical developers and project managers to mingle with other member companies. Share ideas. Collaborate. Learn. Oh and maybe have a frosty beverage or two.
Past STAR technical sessions have been held by Nissan, and Honda. This years agenda is very diversified, and we will be trying an Open Space Technology day to further the exchange of ideas. Be watching this blog as well as the STAR newsletter for more information about the happenings at the Technical Session.

With this release STAR continues to prove that while it may be “Automotive” in name, STAR is more than capable of supporting related industries such as the medium and heavy-duty truck sector. In fact, a significant portion of the enhancements in this release can be attributed to requests made by STAR’s Truck segment. These requirements focused heavily in the area of Parts Management with updates to the Parts Inventory, Parts Prices List, and Parts Shipment specifications among others. This level of cross-industry harmonization is made possible through STAR’s use of a semantically flexible vocabulary creating functional equivalents that meet the needs of multiple industries.
In addition to proving itself as a cross-industry standard, STAR continued to strengthen its position as a globally-recognized standards solution in a project with European auto manufacturers, Renault SAS and PSA Peugeot Citroen. The manufacturers worked together with STAR to identify and incorporate needed enhancements into the STAR Sales Lead standard to meet international requirements. These enhancements have since been found to meet the needs of various U.S.-based users.
The ability of the STAR organization to develop open standards that bridge the gap between industries as well as regions is a testament to its commitment to the efficient and interoperable exchange of business communications.
STAR is technology dedicated to business efficiency.
