    Not quite.
    RAW format is specific to each camera manufacturer, and sometimes to each camera.
    Nikon NEF, Canon CR2, Minolta MRW, they all have different ways of storing the raw data.

    DNG is supposed to be a standard for storing digital images in high resolution and high colour rendition, but its importance will depend upon its acceptance but software and hardware vendors.

    Several camera makers (Leica, Phase One) are already offering DNG as an in-camera choice. It's an openly documented RAW format that is most likely to be supported well into the future (Adobe created the TIFF format and it's been around for a long time).

    I archive all my new work in DNG format, with all the RAW adjustments already embedded in the file. Any further operations are saved as .psd.
