Files used by computers can be compared to books written by people. The file's format can be compared to the language, the book was written in. Persistence for files is guaranteed by our computer systems - but how about systems handling these files some years after ?

Open file formats help to keep the investment done, when assembling the file. Other systems can access the files and converters can be used to import and export the format. The open definitions make it possible for different systems to share data and for future systems to still use work done earlier.

Much work has been invested into the file formats listed here and development goes on. Using these standards makes them strong and lets people share their work. For small solutions it is not necessary to reinvent the wheel and bigger ones can be built of smaller ones to get a system, bigger than the sum of the parts it is made of.
