About DeltaXML

DeltaXML is a world leader in developing software tools for change-control and version management. Our tools find, merge, process and synchronise change in XML and JSON data and documents and are used daily throughout the world by governments, banks, aircraft manufacturers, and the defence industry, where 100% accuracy is vital.

For almost as long as XML has existed, DeltaXML has developed and supported XML Comparison and Merge solutions. Although XML is in our name and was our initial focus, we’ve also extended development to create powerful diff solutions for JSON.

Our comparison software allows you to find and present changes relevant to you, while our merge toolkits intelligently recombine multiple documents or datasets into a single file. Sophisticated algorithms and flexible API mean there are a variety of ways our products are utilised, from improving regulatory processes to adding additional components to existing products and services.
