Turning Too Much into Just Enough:
A Professional Approach to VoiceXML Application Management

By Tiemo Winterkamp

The deployment of VoiceXML applications has grown increasingly popular, as enterprises seek to improve customer relationships and trim customer support costs. Datamonitor has forecasted the growth of the worldwide market for VoiceXML-enabled platforms at a CAGR of 20%, which indicates a market size of over $300 million by 2009. More interestingly, this market growth is a function not only of larger numbers of enterprises seeking to capture the benefits of voice, but also of a trend toward the deployment of larger, more ambitious applications and the deployment of self-service portals offering callers multiple applications. Gartner reports that the number of ASR (Automated Speech Recognition) ports deployed increased from about 98,000 in 2002 to more than 150,000 in 2004.

An Introduction to SCXML

By Jim Barnett

SCXML is a flexible state machine language that combines concepts from CCXML and Harel State Tables. It enhances the basic concept of state machines with such powerful concepts as conditions on transitions and nested and parallel states. As a result, it provides a compact and intelligible representation of complex systems. SCXML is being developed in conjunction with VoiceXML 3, but it will be useful in a wide variety of applications involving the control and synchronization of asynchronous resources.
