Subject: Re: Concern regarding PHASES
Melanie, I donot see any reason for large enterprises to lag behind in using ebXML. Infact our ebXML efforts should concentrate on both large enterprises and small enterprises. I think ebxml architecture and other ebxml efforts does cover large enterpises (Like Enterprise systems, Integration Systems, Messaging Systems etc. as per the current drafts/deliverables). ebXML initiative (ebXML Awareness Team and all of us) should also take responsibility in educating large and small enterprises about the potential of ebXML efforts. If the large enterprises lag then I would say it is the failure of ebxml efforts. Infact, large enterprises (Respective industries) will be driving the XML semantic grammars and the large enterprises should use the ebxml initiative as a framework inorder to make ecommerce pervasive. i.e large enterprises should use Syntax-Neutral Definition of Business Semantics and leverage ebxml efforts. ebXML efforts should provide a path to standard ebxml (XML/EDI) applications development with high return on investment and speed up the implementations. Also, the future is that the smaller alliances within industries will collaborate and they need to use ebXML efforts in defining ebXML applications that incorporate the vocabulary/building-block-level approach and provide the broadest coverage of their information requirements. We need to remember that the leadership definitely will not necessarily come from the traditional IT giants. And ebxml should play a role of catalyst in bringing the upcoming smaller alliances within industries, traditional IT giants, systems Integrators, innovative dot coms etc. on one table to make ecommerce pervasive. Thanks, Khwaja PS: Apologies for posting this message to different ebxml groups. firstname.lastname@example.org on 03/14/2000 07:47:20 AM To: ebXML-Architecture@lists.oasis-open.org cc: Subject: Concern regarding PHASES There was a comment made during yesterday's conference call that that keeps ringing within me that I feel obligated to comment on. It was that during Phase 1 we should keep our scope small and focus on the requirements of Business to Business (B2B). I don't have a problem with that as long as an architecture for a large enterprise is also completed within the 18 month ebXML deliverable horizon. Certainly there are many large enterprises also anxiously waiting for the recommendations that are be promised by ebXML, and I certainly hope that we all agree that they too are within our target audience.
